GHOST CHASERS / Monogram Pictures - 1951

Welcome to Friday the 14th with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots another in a long line of Bowery Boys adventures, this time they're chasing ghosts, not to be confused with SPOOK BUSTERS from 1946. I collected some good Bowery Boys titles off TCM recently.

Eegah!! sent over this fun lil' soundclip from the flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the atomic glowing skeleton, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... GHOST CHASERS!

In this story, Whitey decides to become a fake medium and the boys almost give Louie a heart attack while trying to chisel some money out of him. Louie's last name is... Dumbrowsky!

Slip gives Louie's waitress a lesson in diction, as heard in the soundclip!

There's the guest ghost on the chandelier, Edgar Alden Franklin Smith, played by the very popular actor, Lloyd Corrigan. He also has 27 writing credits and 13 directing credits, and can be seen in THE GHOST BREAKERS, MEXICAN SPITFIRE'S BABY, CAPTIVE WILD WOMAN, TARZAN'S DESERT MYSTERY, SHE-WOLF OF LONDON, THE GHOST GOES WILD, THE BRIDE GOES WILD, SON OF PALEFACE and my favorite, THE BOWERY BOYS MEET THE MONSTERS.

Slip and the gang put the screws to this old hag fake medium who's trying to bilk some big bucks out of their neighbor, Mrs. Parelli, who lost her loving son in Korea.

Sach hooks up with the pilgrim ghost for a few rounds of laffs!

Everyone except Sach is told to go down the ladder into a small room and wait there. Then, the bad guys start filling it with water, to drown them like rats!!

Edgar drives Sach to a telephone booth in the jalopy, he calls Louie's waitress to bring help. Luckily, that's a cop there, so, they head out to the spooky old location to assist the gang.

The bad guys use hypnotism to stop the gang dead in their tracks after they go on the attack!

Thing is though, Sach has Edgar on his side and is actually too stupid to be hypnotized!
