Storyline

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 »

Quotes

Ghost of Peeping Tom: That confounded shutter.
Shemp: I shutter to think of it.
Moe: Shutter up!

Not one of their best
4 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid and first saw this, it stymied me. What would a woman riding a horse be doing in a haunted house ? After several years of knowing who Lady Godiva is and the legend of Peeping Tom it now makes sense.Even then, the slapstick humor of the boys doesn't work well in a haunted house. If it was Curly, definitely, Stan Laurel or Lou Costello, absolutely, but the Stooges to me was always about three guys who were friends who fought with each other; otherwise, they would have killed each other a long time ago. The short does win points on the creepy atmosphere level. A skull flies through the air on wings flapping a sheet behind it and skeletons roam the house on their bony legs. Good images for a haunted house ! One note though, the Red Skeleton gag is a funny one, but the Southern black man accent isn't politically correct for the changing of the times.
