The Ghost Train (1941)

This Arthur Askey vehicle is little short of awful - just once or twice it manages to raise a smile, but Askey's character, entertainer Tommy Gander, is always annoying and almost never funny; his compatriots are a bunch of stock comedy characters with little likeability or humour. The plot involves a group of passengers stranded at a station said to be haunted... this movie rarely gets out of first gear, and sometimes it seems to be stuck in reverse.

There's an infinitely better Arthur Askey movie involving trains, and that's The Love Match  (which I was sure I'd mentioned before on this blog but I seem to be mistaken) - do yourself a real favour and watch that instead!
