The second of the Bob Hope/Paulette Goddard Supernatural "Old dark House" mysteries following on from their success in "The Cat And The Canary". This one is probably more enjoyable than the earlier vehicle. Goddard's Mary Carter inherits and old mansion on the island of Cuba and despite many offers for her to sell it she refuses and intends to sail to Cuba from New York. Enter Bob Hope's Larry Lawrence, a radio reporter on the run from the Mob, who with his hilarious black manservant Willie Best, joins Mary on the cruise to Cuba and the mansion on Black Island. What do they find there....Murder victims, a ghost and a Zombie.

Picture quality on this REGION 1 DVD is ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT - PRISTINE BLACK AND WHITE WITH LITTLE GRAIN (especially played back on an upscaled 4k 78" TV it looked great. SEE SCREEN GRABS and the sound is clear and not to hissy either. Certainly a step up from the varying picture quality reports on The Cat and The Canary

Had seen this film many years ago and enjoyed it so decided to purchase. The picture and sound quality are very good. Having seen many Bob Hope movies this is definitely a favourite - good story, plenty of humour and well worth a watch.

Being an octagenarian I have always enjoyed black & white films and Bob hope was always great to watch in my younger years.I was delighted when looking through Amazon's huge list of films, that it was available on DVD. The B & W films always have an air mystery any way.E Salmon

This DVD is not for UK devices it can only be watched on a PC. Would have cost me more than what I paid for to send it back. Very disappointed.
