This extremely British comedy features Trevor Howard lurking about a mansion in search of a ghost. It's the spirit of his brother, Vivian Stanshall, who had been accidentally shot by Howard. Stanshall had been wearing no pants when he was killed and must regain his trousers if his spirit

is ever to rest. This is an utterly delightful example of stylish, bawdy British humor at its naughty best. Employing elements of Ealing Studio horror films with a good dash of Monty Python gags mixed in, the film is directed with style. The black-and-white cinematography adds to the atmosphere,

and the players carry out their roles with restrained glee. Originally this had been a British radio show, then a popular recording, before being transferred to film. The film's production company was a division of Charisma Records, the company that released the recorded version of the tale. Not

for everyone but certainly a must for fans of this sort of humor.
