Trivia

Notorious as the main feature on the double bill which also featured the original release of the Orson Welles classic The Magnificent Ambersons (1942). "Ambersons" was therefore relegated to "second feature" status, something usually reserved for B pictures. See more »

Awful!
27 December 1999 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of the "Mexican Spitfire" series, and thought that this entry would be a good "haunted house comedy". It isn't. Both Lupe Valez and Mantan Moreland are completely wasted in this film.

The only thing that saves it (and not by much!) is Leon Errol's "Lord Epping" routine, but even THAT is much better in the other "Spitfire" films. Don't waste your time with this one.
