Goofs:
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 »

One of their lesser efforts, 2 April 2012
Author: frankfob from California

The Stooges are movers hired to clean out an old house and get mixed up with the ghosts of Peeping Tom and Lady Godiva. This is definitely one of the team's lesser--VERY lesser--efforts. Much of the "script" doesn't particularly make sense, and the comedy is lame and forced. The Stooges just seem to be going through the numbers, as if they've done this a thousand times before, which they pretty much had. The only saving grace occurs at the end when the "ghost" of Lady Godiva rides in on a white horse to take away the ghost of Peeping Tom, who had been trapped inside a suit of armor. Godiva is played by Columbia starlet Nancy Saunders, a tall, long-legged blonde in a skimpy, attention-getting outfit. She's a sight to see, but it's not really worth sitting through this tired, by-the-numbers "comedy" to see it. Skip it.
