Plot: Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard's comic timing is excellent, and the works on which they are teamed together contain some of the funniest moments filmed by either actor. Hope plays Larry Lawrence, a New York City detective who becomes involved in a gangster-related hotel shoot-out. Believing he has killed a man, Lawrence hides in a trunk owned by Mary Carter (Goddard). When Lawrence gets out of the trunk, he finds himself on a steamboat, as Carter is en route to a castle which she has recently inherited on a small island off the coast of Cuba. While aboard the ship, Carter and Lawrence are aprised of rumors that the castle is haunted, but they remains steadfast in their will to visit it. Once there, many perilous and hilarious adventures await. THE GHOST BREAKERS is widely heralded as the best of Hope and Goddard's combined efforts.
