There's also an ambitious dance-routine (giving band leader David Rose a chance to shine) with ghosts and skeletons double-exposed into the graveyard set. Clem Kadiddlehopper, for those who've never seen Red's character, is a Lou Costello without a brain to steal, though that doesn't stop Bela as "Prof. Lugosi" from trying.
