A gruff sea captain is having trouble manning his ship because of rumors it's haunted. He inveigles Stanley and Oliver into helping him shanghai a crew from the sailors at a dockside bar. Once aboard, the captain warns them that whoever says the word "ghost" will get his head twisted from north to south. At sea, one of the drunken sailors falls into a trough of whitewash, terrorizing Stanley and Oliver into blurting out "ghost" in front of the enraged captain. Written by

The whitewash trough was too shallow to cover the drunken sailor with whitewash just by his falling into it face-down. In the first shot of him falling, the whitewash doesn't splash much onto his back side, but in the next shot, he is covered all over in whitewash. See more »
If anybody ever mentions the word "ghost" to me, I'm gonna twist his head around so that when he's walking north he'll be looking south.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! The Live Ghost is honestly one of the funniest Laurel and Hardy shorts that I have ever seen, along with Twice-Two, The Music Box, and County Hospital! This is one of my favorites that Laurel and Hardy ever made, I honestly couldn't quit laughing when I first saw this, I mean that I was laughing so hard, that I almost was crying, and not only that, but no sound was even coming out! No kidding, this really is an extremely hysterical short film with the extremely hilarious Laurel And Hardy! The Live Ghost is not something just for fans of Laurel and Hardy, but it is for everyone! All in all, this is memorable, and just plain hysterical!
By the way, I own this on DVD, and so I can watch this at any time that I please!
Well watch this some time, because you are seriously going to have hard time trying not to laugh! No really, this is something hysterical to watch and enjoy! So bravo to Laurel and Hardy for making another one of their shorts films really hysterical! Wonderful! Hysterical! Marvelous! Fantastic!
