Angela Lansbury makes her film debut. Art Direction and Ingrid Bergman received Academy Awards.

At eerie Marsh Manor, Radio sleuths Jerry Miles, (Carney), and Mike Strager, (Brown), are threatened by a master criminal and cold blooded killer named "The Cobra", (Atwill).
Comedians Carney and Brown's sixth and final feature film, their second with Lugosi after Zombies on Broadway (1945), who had finished his three picture deal with RKO.
This comedy mystery is notable as being Lionel Atwill's last feature film and for displaying the original spider model designed for King Kong, but never used in the final print, which can be spied on a shelf in the shot of a movie set.

GENUINE (1920/Decla Bioskop) BW. Silent. Germany.
Credits: Dir: Robert Wiene; Sc: Carl Mayer; Ph: Willy Hameister; Sets: Cesar Klein.
Cast: Fern Andra, Harald Paulsen, Ernst Gronau, John Gottowt, Hans Heinz von Twardoski.

GERTIE THE DINOSAUR (1909/Winsor McCay) 1 reel. BW. Silent. Animated. US.
Credits: Dir: Winsor McCay.
Cast: Winsor McCay, George McManus.
A brontosaurus named Gertie emerges from her cave and performs various tricks for a circus ringmaster, (McCay), by eating a tree, catching an apple and giving the ringmaster a ride on her back.
A film that only depicts the dinosaur was designed to tour theatres while McCay, the comic strip artist who drew the original "Little Nemo in Slumberland", would stand to the side of the screen and interact with Gertie. The apple that McCay would throw to the cartoon goes behind the screen while Gertie catches an animated apple. McCay repeats this process when he rides on the dinosaur's back.

GERTIE THE DINOSAUR (1910/Bray Films) BW. Silent. US.
Credits: Dir: John R. Bray.
Cast: John R. Bray.
New York animator Bray even went so far as to release this shameless copy of Winsor McCay's Gertie the Dinosaur as a McCay film. Technically this was described as being more innovative than its predecessor.

GERTIE ON TOUR (1917/McCay) 1 reel. BW. Silent. Animated. US.
Credits: Winsor McCay.
A short sequel to McCay's Gertie the Dinosaur featuring more of the comic brontosaurus.

THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR (1947/20th. Century Fox) 104mins. BW. US.
Credits: Dir: Joseph L. Mankiewicz; Prod: Fred Kohlmar; Sc: Philip Dunne; Ph: Charles Lang; Ed: Dorothy Spencer; Art: Richard Day & George Davis; Mus: Bernard Herrmann.
From the novel by R.A. Dick.
Cast: Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison, George Sanders, Edna Best, Vanessa Brown, Anna Lee, Robert Coote, Natalie Wood, Isobel Elsom.

A young widow, (Tierney), refuses to move from her English seaside house when she is frightened by the ghost of Capt. Daniel Gregg, (Harrison), but they fall in love and she writes his memoirs to increase her finances.
An enjoyable slice of Hollywood whimsey made all the more effective by strong lead performances and Sanders' scene stealing dialogue.

THE GHOST AND THE CANDLE (1903) see Le Revenant

THE GHOST AND THE GUEST (1943/PRC.) 59mins. BW. US.
Credits: Dir: William Nigh; Prod: Arthur Alexander; Sc: Morey Amsterdam. From a story by Milt Gross.

An uninspired comedy chiller and a remake of Paramount's The Ghost Breaker (1914).

Credits: Dir: George Marshall; Prod: Arthur Hornblow Jnr.; Sc: Walter De Leon; Ph: Charles Lang & Theodore Sparkuhl; Process Ph: Farciot Edouard; Ed: Ellsworth Hoagland; Art: Hans Drier & Robert Usher; Sets: A. E. Freudman; Mus: Ernest Toch. From a play by Paul Dickey & Charles W. Goddard.

A darker and well photographed follow up to Cat and the Canary (1939) with similar one-liners from Hope in what is considered to be his best role. Previously filmed in 1914 starring H.B. Warner, in 1922 with Wallace Reid. Remade in 1953 as a vehicle for Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis titled Scared Stiff.

GHOST CATCHERS (1944/Universal) 68mins. BW. US.
Credits: Dir: Edward F. Cline; Prod. & Sc: Edmund L. Hartmann; Ph: Charles Van Enger; Ed: Arthur Hilton; Art: John B. Goodman & Richard H. Riedel; Sets: Russell A. Gausman & Andrew J.

Colonel Marshall, (Catlett), and his beautiful daughters, (Jean & O'Driscoll), move to New York from the Deep South and encounter ghosts in their Manhattan home, while next door is the popular Olsen and Johnson nightclub.
A low grade spoof and the last feature film vehicle for vaudeville comedians Olsen and Johnson who provide a few low-brow chuckles. Only the various monsters bring anything of substance to the film.

A successful supernatural comedy made in grand Korda style, but lacking the fullness of its potential.

"New thrills as the Monster stalks again!"
"You can't keep a good monster down!"
Ygor, (Lugosi), persuades Frankenstein's second son, Ludwig, (Hardwicke), to bring the monster that has been preserved in sulpher back to life, but instead of using Ygor's brain as the deformed manservant would have liked, Frankenstein wants the brain of Dr. Kettering, (Yarborough), in his creation. Ygor colludes with Frankenstein's assistant Erik Ernst, (Bellamy), to get his wish, but when the monster is revived, (Chaney), Ygor's blood type does not match and the Creature loses his sight. In a violent outburst the monster kills Erik and burns down the laboratory only to perish in the flames.
The weakest of the Universal Frankenstein cycle set four years after SON OF..., but despite the poor script, this still maintains a unique gothic atmosphere.
Footage from Frankenstein (1931) appears in a flashback sequence, and the climactic lab destruction scene was later used as the finale for House of Dracula (1945).
Released on 8mm as FRANKENSTEIN'S NEW BRAIN and TRIAL OF FRANKENSTEIN.

The producer, who is now highly sceptical of the events occurring, greets the lunatic with derision.
