Simple, but charming.
19 March 2015 | by peefynSee all my reviews

I am not quite sure if I saw the full version of this. As far as I can see, this is listed as 4 minutes on the "American Slapstick"-release, but the version I saw was only 2:50. I might have been watching it at a higher speed, as one of the other reviews mentioned how slow it is (I did not notice that).

Either way: This is a short slapstick film about panic over a ghost. I saw this isolated (and have not seen many other slapsticks of the same kind), and I found it charming, in it's cheap special effects, and old fashioned humor. One of that gags, where a girl is trying to shut a door, that a man has his head stuck in, was funny. And seeing the ridiculous ghost-effect is also charming.

I am curious as to how much of this short is missing, because the ending is a bit abrupt.

All in all: A couple of gags, the charm of it being old, and short enough that even someone with a modern day attention span could watch it. I'm sure reading this review takes longer than watching the darn thing, so take a look if you are interested!
