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

A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short. After helping a conniving captain kidnap seamen for his ship, Stan & Ollie end up shanghaied themselves. The trouble really starts, however, when the Boys accidentally `kill' one of their cabin mates. Dumping the body overboard, they are terrified to see THE LIVE GHOST stalking the decks.
Lots of laughs in this little film. Watching the Boys' reactions when they see the `ghost' is hilarious. That's Mae Busch as the captain's girlfriend.
