Jimmie, the Brownsville Bugle's office boy, and Millie, niece of editor Henshaw, turn amateur detectives in order to help a friend who is accused of murder. With more zeal than direction, they pick the owner of a gas station as the killer, and when he turns out to be innocent, Henshaw fires Jimmie.

The earliest documented telecast of this film occurred Sunday 26 April 1942 on New York City's pioneer television station WNBT (Channel 1). Post-WWII television viewers got their first look at it Wednesday 11 May 1950 on the Night Owl Theatre on WPIX (Channel 11). See more »
Don't let the title of this scarce movie fool you. It's not a haunted house movie & it's not an "old dark house" type of movie. It's a simple murder mystery movie with teenage leads. They do spend about 5 of the movie's 70 minutes inside an old spooky house, but that's hardly enough to warrant naming this movie "Haunted House"! Not a bad movie, although a bit redundant. The acting is OK, there's a neat old hot rod, but it's neither juvenile enough to please that movie crowd, nor scary, nor mysterious enough to please those movie crowds. I rate it 5/10 (& that's being a bit generous).
