    <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/scared-stiff-11934442"><img src="http://content8.flixster.com/photo/11/93/44/11934442_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Scared Stiff</a> </div></div> I had forgotten about this one. This was almost as good a spook comedy as anything by Abbott and Costello. Some really good sets, and an hilarious cameo homage to Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. I notice that in the days before air conditioning, nobody is portrayed as sweating in the Carribean, despite being dressed rather snuggly for the climate. Some great gags, however. Lewis receives a lot of criticism. Often overlooked is the fact that he is a superb and accomplished physical comedian, which is as evident in this picture as any. I suppose that such things go largely unappreciated these days, when everyone is more interested in break dancing and learning how to "moon walk." The physical abilities of entertainers such as Harold Lloyd, Robin Williams, Jerry Lewis, even Patrick Swayze, are far more impressive.
