Portlander's Movie Log - July, 2013 (35 movies items)

"Recommended by Xanadon't Watched July 14th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "Listen, you stay there and if a couple a fellas come runnin' down the stairs in a few minutes, let the first one go - that'll be me." - Larry Lawrence Ghost Breakers is another Bob Hope movie but this one is not the usual farce that he is known for, instead it has murder, vudu, bats, zombies, ghosts and a haunted house - even Anthony Quinn makes an appearance, I love that he got his start in Bob Hope movies - mix that "

Monthly Movie Journal: Halloween Edition (36 movies items)

"*Special Screening This is a comedic romp dressed up with just enough horror elements to land it on this list. And as far as I can tell it's criminally under-seen and under-talked about. The Ghost Breakers stars Bob Hope- before he became the Bob Hope most of us think of- as a fast-talking, wise-cracking radio personality and swinging bachelor. But he's neither as greasy nor as obnoxious as that description makes him sound. Think Fred Astaire, not Vince Vaughn. Then we have Paulette Goddard, "

My Movie Diary 2011 (279 movies items)

"9.1 Bob Hope crackles with some funny one liners in this romance comedy also starring Paulette Goddard, Paul Lukas and Anthony Quinn. If this weren’t from 1940, I’d say the story of a heiress being scared by bad guys out of a supposedly haunted castle is way overdone. But its Bob Hope and he’s always entertainment. "
