Did You Know?

In order to make Moe Howard's hair stand on end when terrified by the ghosts, a high-powered air compressor was used.See more »
Anachronisms: 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!, 11 March 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

This is on of the spookiest and funniest Three Stooges shorts! It begins rather well with thunders storms and the howling wind! When the Stooges discover that the armor talks and they have a conversation about who he is its gets really good after that! I think I was funny when the Stooges opened that chest and the skeleton came out and he says that he's Red and Shemp says Red Skeleton! I thought that was very funny! There is a lot of other type of spooky stuff in this one and also another funny part in it is when Larry talks to the suit of armor he say to "well maybe he doesn't talk English" and then he say things in other languages and the suit of armor replies to it and Larry's hat spins around and he is very frightened! I thought it was funny! The owl scene was very funny! Like some other spooky type Three Stooges shorts this is a great Three Stooges short to watch over again around Halloween time!
