The Ghost Train


Walter Forde
Gainsborough Pictures

Arnold 'Can I be excused?' Ridley's play becomes a vehicle for Arthur Askey and one really wishes Will Hay had been there instead. Nevertheless, a classic of 40s UK cinema that seems to have been elusive for many years.

-The Sloth

Previously filmed in 1927, 1931 and 1939 (the latter being a Dutch film), and apparently due for a remake in 2012.
