The Time of Their Lives (1946)

(aka: The Ghost Steps Out)



Reviews and Comments

Abbott and Costello's second ghost story (the first being Hold That Ghost is a bit of an oddball. The usual formula would have been to have Costello as a live person being comically scared by ghosts, but he's the ghost this time -- and still, somehow, being comically scared. The unusual premise of the story paves the way for some fresh comic material, and the result is probably one of the duo's better efforts.
