Host to a Ghost (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Pretty good Andy Clyde short has him going to an old house to do repairs when Northern and Southern Civil War ghosts show up to do battle. This is the first film I've seen from Clyde and it took a little while to warm up to his humor but overall I really enjoyed this short. There are plenty of laughs as well as a couple nice horror set pieces.

Later remade as One Spooky Night, also with Clyde.

As of now, none of Clyde's Columbia shorts are on DVD so to see them you'll have to find them through a trader.
