Colonel Breckinridge Martshall (Walter Catlett), a self-appointed southern colonel, brings his two daughters,Melinda (Gloria Jean) and Susanna (Martha O'Driscoll), to New York City so they can sing at Carnegie Hall. He buys a haunted house from Chambers ('Walter Kingsford' qv)) a crooked real estate dealer. The "ghosts" start their work on the first night and Susanna runs next door to a nightclub owned by Olsen (Ole Olsen) and Johnson (Chic Johnson)and they agree to help her...and set out to rid the house of the ghosts.

Olsen & Johnson's FUNNIEST film !
5 June 2000 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ.) – See all my reviews

This film is to O & J what "Hold That Ghost" is to Abbott & Costello -- by far, their FUNNIEST film!

A Southern Colonel and his two daughters move into a "haunted house" in NYC...O & J (who own the night club next door) help them "despook" the place!

NOTE: Someone has written me about this film -- I HAVE IT in my collection of over 800 films! If you would like a copy, pls EMAIL me, using the addr next to my name: create a "regular" email; DON'T click on the addy. I might not get it!!!!

"Last the Best of All the Game!" Norm
