Robert Morley and Felix Aylmer are a pair of Queen Anne era Colonel Blimps who
have taken a nice house and live together. Thinking that the Duke of Marlborough is about to do something stupid they hatch a plot to kidnap him.
But they blunder into their own trap and are killed.
The curse of Queen Anne falls on them. They are earthbound until a member of
the royal house visits their dwelling. Otherwise they are a pretty lively pair and
have all kinds of powers to use for their enjoyment and to get some royalty over to the place as the house passes through several different owners. A lot
more than Marjorie Reynolds and Lou Costello had in The Time Of Their Lives
which film bears some resemblance.
A bit of knowledge of British history helps in viewing this film. The ghosts
are bound for over 300 years. And you won't believe what it takes to get a
monarch to the place.
Very droll and witty a real treat for the ear that way.
