Ghosts on the Loose (1943)

William Beaudine
Horror, Comedy
Original TFD Introduction by Dana Hersey. Bela Lugosi and the East Side Kids team up in this "spook comedy" from Monogram Pictures. The kids are trying to fix up a house for a newlywed couple, but find the place to be filled with secret panels, and even some strange men who seem to be lurking in the shadows. Look for the usual members of the gang, including Leo Gorcey as Mugs, and Huntz Hall as Gimpy, with the lovely Ava Gardner in her first speaking role. As the original ad campaign said, "It's Chill-arious!" (BW)
