Hold That Ghost
DIRECTOR: ARTHUR LUBIN
CAST: BUD ABBOTT, LOU COSTELLO, RICHARD CARLSON, JOAN DAVIS
Abbott and Costello never got no respect from the highbrows, but what their movies lack in fancy-schmancy mise-en-scene they make up for in bulk delivery of dumb laughs. Hold That Ghost, which has gas station attendants Bud and Lou inheriting a haunted estate from a gangster, is one of the boys’ hysterical best, a real solar plexus work-out with ample ectoplasm and an Andrews Sisters appearance on top of everything.
Hold That Ghost is playing as part of Father’s Day Weekendat Metrograph. Clickhere for more info.
