A fair example of how lowbrow Music Hall British comedy worked in the 1940s.

Audience Reviews for The Ghost Train


This Brit WW2 feature about travellers stranded by a storm and faced with the imminent arrival of a purported ghost train is derailed by its focus on music hall personality Arthur Askey who has just about one of the most annoying schticks as you are as like to run into. A minute of his"snappy patter" is like an eternity and, although many onscreen characters threaten to halt his antics, no one does. I wanted to murder the director.

This is an old one, 1941 in fact an attemp to mix comedy and horror, Didn't do much for me. Just to much slapstick. 2 1/2 stars
