Bob Hope&#39;s death really shocked me. Not that I knew him personally, or thought about him often. In fact at that time I doubt if I had ever re-watched one of his movies for at least ten years. But it saddened me nevertheless.<br/><br/>You see, during my early teens, it was often only Bob and his movies that kept me going, that made me survive the hostility (well, that&#39;s how it seemed to me at the time) of life at school. I devoured any book on Hope that I could lay my hands one, caught as many movies as television broadcast, good ones bad ones, I saw the lot.<br/><br/>After school ended (in the mid-eighties), I discovered that I didn&#39;t need Bob any more. I gradually stopped watching his movies, gradually forgot all about him as I forgot my teenage worries. His death changed all that, like the burst of adrenaline you get when you slam hard on the brake, the memories flooded back. I ordered several DVD&#39;s; re- watched his movies with new interest.<br/><br/>The Ghost Breakers was a favourite of mine as a teenager and age hasn&#39;t diluted its quality. The ?forties was Hope&#39;s decade and he was never the same after it. Perhaps he needed the danger that the war years provided, as, in his best movies, the comedian thrives on danger. His was an uncertain world, with death at every elbow, yet, while not a hero, he managed to survive and come out top (perhaps it was this quality that my adolescent mind grasped on to). In The Ghost Breakers, the supernatural chills are there and are still effective; the zombie in particular, remains a very eerie creation. In fact, there are times when it is easy to forget that this is a Bob Hope comedy and not a straight horror movie (you can easily imagine, that Val Lewton, say, was out in the original audience, taking notes).<br/><br/>Hope is helped by the cast. Sexy Paulette Goddard reunited from the almost as good The Cat And The Canary, Anthony Quinn, perhaps a villain, perhaps a good guy. While Hope and the splendid Willie Best make an ideal partnership (though Best is sadly politically-incorrect these days).<br/><br/>Atmospheric, chilling and very funny, this is how I will always remember Bob.<br/><br/>Cheers Bob and thanks for the memories.

Paulette Goddard (Mary) inherits a spooky mansion in Cuba that comes with a ghostly reputation. She isn&#39;t bothered and eagerly sets sail to check it out. However, she accidentally gets a couple of chaperones when broadcaster Bob Hope (Lawrence Lawrence Lawrence) and his valet Willie Best (Alex) make a get-a-way from a murder scene. The three of them head for Cuba and the haunted house despite warnings that Goddard will be killed if she sets foot there. There are a cast of suspects that pop up, but can you guess who the villain is? <br/><br/>This film starts on a fantastic stormy night. It&#39;s a great start to the film as you settle into a comedy that makes you feel safe with a cast that are all a joy to watch. We travel through some amusing situations and then, about two-thirds of the way through?. Bam??!......., we hit genuine spookiness. When we arrive at the haunted house, and we see zombie Noble Johnson and his mother Virginia Brissac, we could easily be in a creepy horror film. They are very convincing.<br/><br/>The set for the house is perfect and we get memorable sequences unfolding there, for example Paulette Goddard coming down the stairs dressed in a black dress as portrayed in a giant portrait above the staircase. This is eerie stuff worthy of a true chiller.<br/><br/>I have to say that it is one of the few times that a film succeeds with the comedy/creepy house combination. Such films usually fall flat on both counts. Not here. The film resolves itself neatly and is an entertaining way to pass the time.

While this isn&#39;t all that funny a film, it is pleasant and enjoyable and a lot better than most of Bob Hope&#39;s films. In general, I have found that I liked Hope&#39;s earlier films far more than the ones he did in the 50s onward--they just seem fresher and more compelling.<br/><br/>Bob and Willie Best come to the rescue of poor little old Paulette Goddard. She has inherited a mansion in Cuba, but she receives warnings and threats NOT to take possession--of she will die!! While I have read several places that this is a remake of THE CAT AND THE CANARY, I just didn&#39;t see this at all--and I recently saw both films. While it is somewhat reminiscent, they are really very, very different films. Both are worth seeing, though.<br/><br/>By the way, there are some tacky remarks concerning mentally retarded people in the film that were not at all unusual for the day, and some might take offense to Best&#39;s character. However, compared to many of the other characters played by Best in previous films (when he was billed as &quot;Sleep &#39;n&#39; Eat&quot; instead of &quot;Willie Best&quot;), his portrayal is pretty responsible and avoids most of the usual &quot;black man in a haunted house&quot; clichés.
