Mezclando gèneros Bon Hope.
The best comedy movie ever made!
While not quite at the level of the 1927 original, this is a worthy remake in spite of being a Bob Hope vehicle. He & Goddard are great on screen (I finally understand what Chaplin saw in her), with Nydia & Gale nearly stealing several scenes. Scary fun for the whole family.
Fast-moving remake of the 1927 silent classic.
Early Bob Hope vehicle, stuffed with every Old Dark House clichÃ© - the reading of the will, the passage behind the bookcase, the painting with the moving eyes, and even a Mrs Danvers-like housekeeper. Bob Hope's wisecracks are pretty dreadful, but it's atmospherically designed, nicely performed, and done and dusted in 75 mins. There are worse ways to spend an evening.
Enjoyable horror/comedy story of Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard being summoned to an old dark house in a Louisiana bayous by a rich relative who's passed away for a reading of the will. Lots of spooky intrigue happens and Hope provides lots of one-liner quips, which is great if you're a fan of Hope. This was the film that solidified Hope as a star and he and Goddard make a great pair. Stilly, but lots of fun.
Favorite classic thriller!!
Itâ??s hokey stuff with hidden doors and secret passages and a hidden treasure, which director Elliot Nugent stages with all the style and tension of a sitcom. But Hope and Goddard have marvelous chemistry and Hope is completely amiable, using wisecracks to cover up his discomfort and fear. â??I always joke when Iâ??m scared,â?? he confesses to heroine Goddard. â??I kind of kid myself into being brave.â?? Hopeâ??s delivery makes this less a laugh line than a confession and a promise; heâ??s got integrity and the courage to both reveal his vulnerabilities and overcome them. Goddard, meanwhile, is a spunky beauty with crack timing, a born comedienne too often called upon to play the straight man and provide the sex appeal.
Oddly, I prefer the silent version over this one. This is pretty standard, except Bob Hope is here, so every line he has has to have a punchline.
Bob Hope seems unexpectedly inserted into this otherwise rather standard murder mystery (the kind where people gather at midnight to hear the reading of the will). In fact, the other characters seem to notice his special status, reacting with hostility or in Paulette Goddard's case, with romantic interest. Of course, he is supposed to be an "actor" which might justify why he is dropping jokes left and right while most (if not all) of the other characters play it straight. With Hope's contributions and the acceptable handling of the suspense plot by director Nugent, this is a fine (and brief) time-waster - but no more.
