| An excellent and hilarious film
This film showcases comedy from start to finish. Don Knotts stars and his outstanding performance in this film demonstrates a gift for comedy that very few actors have, and which is never seen in today's films. This movie is family-friendly, does not include offensive language of any kind, and holds the viewer's interest consistently. Many talented character actors appear in this film in supporting roles, including Dick York and Joan Staley. Ms. Staley shines as Knott's love interest, helping him to solve a mystery in a haunted house. Small town American characters give the viewer a look at America as it was in 1963. If you like movies about haunted houses, and you like comedy, this one is a "must see". This is the first movie by Don Knotts after he left The Andy Griffith Show, a sitcom staple of the early 1960's.
