One of the Better Films
One of the Better Films-post Leo Gorcey;
Yes, quite funny.
Adding 'Blinky' and the Irish restaurant helped a lot.
I noticed the film swiped a few Three Stooges gags -- painting a cuckoo clock, water coming out of phone, etc.
It's happened in a few other Bowery films too.
I watched this Bowery Boys film this morning on TCM and really enjoyed it. It is a funny movie. I am glad that TCM is showing the Bowery Boys each Saturday morning. It is amusing to note that they all seem to spend 24 hours a day hanging out at the cafe. Not one of them appears to have a job!
One weakness in "Spook Chasers" was the female lead, Darlene Fields. She had little sex appeal and was a cut below the gorgeous starlets that have been featured in recent weeks, such as Joi Lansing and Jane Nigh. Just my opinion.
I was surprised to see how good this movie actually was even without Leo in it, but haunted house movies in general almost always seem to do well regardless of who's starring in them; though watching this one I did flash on the East Side Kids' classic Ghosts on the Loose.share
Agreed:haunted house movies do better !
