    One of my earliest movie memories is watching an old black and white bob hope film called "the cat and the canary". It was a sort of a horror comedy and although I can remember almost none of it I remember thinking it was brilliant!

    I must have been all of about 8 at the time though and before I rush out and buy it (just seen it's out on dvd) I was just wondering if anyone has seen it.

    Is it really any good or was I just an easily pleased, possibly delusional child?

    I probably saw it last in my twenties and still enjoyed it. Bob Hope's big breakthrough, and the lovely Paulette Goddard.
    May be a bit creaky, but probably a better buy than The Haunted Mansion, anyway...

    Got this on VHS and it is still a great watch. Have you seen this advertised somewhere on DVD? Would like to know where if you have.

    If you liked "The Cat and the Canary" check out another Hope / Goddard horror/comedy on a very nicely done R1 DVD "The Ghost Breakers". :smashin:

    Yeah it's out on R2 as a barebones release. Noticed it on amazon first actually but it's cheaper at play:

    still not exactly cheap though!

    Cheers for the heads up on "The Ghost Breakers", I'll keep an eye out for it.
