The Time of Their Lives (The Ghost Steps Out) Reviews
October 19, 2014
It is difficult to call this an Abbot & Costello movie, since Bud & Lou are on their own for most of this ghostly 1946 comedy. Frankly, this is one of the weakest A&C films, which suffers from a weak and inconsistent plot and a lousy performance by Bud Abbott, who proves he isn't capable of being anything but a straight man. The high point is Gale Sondergaard channelling Judith Anderson's Mrs. Danvers character from Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca" (1940).

A forgotten fave. Lou's ghost is cursed to roam a mansion while Bud is reincarnated into a psychiatrist. With Gale Sondergaard from THE BLUE BIRD.

One of Abbott and Costello's most unusual, and one of their best.

Abbott and Costello flick which starts in 1780 during the Revolution. Lou plays a character who is mistaken for a traitor along with a lady-friend and are killed and dumped in a well, cursed to haunt the manor for all time. The mansion is destroyed and not until the 1940s is it rebuilt. Being bored for so long, they decide to haunt the new inhabitants. They learn why the were killed and with the help of the live humans try to find evidence to exonerate them. Lots of funny moments, the obvious jokes were not over-used and it never gets stale.

This is my favorite Abbot & Costello movie, and oddly enough, they're not together in the movie all that much.

7.5/10. One of the best of the Abbott and Costello films, highly entertaining with a very amusing plot (somewhat reminiscent of Topper). Nice special effects and Lou Costello is at his near best. Great classic.
