Colonel Walter Catlett (Marshall) rents a house for himself and his daughters singer Gloria Jean (Melinda) and Martha O'Driscoll (Susanna). There is a much better singer next door Ella Mae Morse (Virginia) at the nightclub where Olsen and Johnson do their schtick. Anyway, there is a red herring of an actual ghost as the plot involves a murder plot that doesn't really make any sense.
Whether you like this film will depend on whether you like Olsen and Johnson. If you've never seen them as I hadn't, then I'll tell you that they are rubbish. There are musical interludes throughout the film that seem to belong in a completely different film. And they are all rubbish as well apart from 2 or 3 songs that Ella Mae Morse is involved in. You'll know the ones. They are the only memorable part of the film which is boring and drags.
