Cute but not much more.
19 February 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Uncle Josh (Charles Manley) was one of the first film character stars--as he appeared three times in Edison films. In this installment, Uncle Josh has gotten some friend to come with him to some haunted hotel. However, as midnight approaches, the friend wants to leave and Josh keeps on preventing him from going. Soon after, a ghost appears and begins messing with the men--getting them to think the other is poking them. Soon, they start knocking each other about and the movie soon ends.

This is a cute little movie. It's a shame then that it only lasted about a minute--the norm for 1900. If it could have gone on longer, they could have exploited this situation more instead of making it just a one-gag movie. Interesting to watch but it could have been more.
