The stooges are movers for an express company and on a rainy night are sent to move some junk, including a suit of armor, from a spooky old house. The armor is haunted by the ghost of Peeping Tom, who has no intention of leaving. The ghost foils the stooges attempts to take the armor, until Lady Godiva shows up and the two ride off together.

Goofs

When Shemp offers the ghost in the armor "a smoke", the specter says he hasn't had a smoke "in a thousand years." Even though the spirit is from the time of Lady Godiva (11th century), smoking did not come to Europe until the 17th century. So the longest that the spirit would have done without a smoke was about 300 years. See more »

The Ghost Talks (1949) stars Moe, Larry and Shemp. It's about the stooges moving furniture from an old house. They find an old suit of armor that has been haunted for 1000 years. Overall, it's a half-decent stooge short with a weird plot.

Like the other guy said, this is definitely not one of their best shorts. There not much slapstick action but it does have it's moments!
