Attaboy Luther!

The first film Don Knotts made after leaving Mayberry to sign a multi-film contract with Universal, I first saw "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" as a tiny tot when it played in support of "Munsters, Go Home" at the drive-in, and it was so funny I forgot all about the severe sunburn I had acquired at the beach earlier in the day. And now, 37 years later, it's still hilarious. An adult, especially a college graduate who majored in English, isn't supposed to admit that "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" is one of his favorite films, at least not without embarrassment at his lack of "sophistication," but I admit it with pride. Knotts may not have had a film career on a par with Laurel and Hardy, but he's their equal in my book and this is his best film. It even manages to be genuinely spooky at times (that organ music-yikes!). This is a comedy classic, and a family film in the best sense of the word.

Even the fun is frightening!

What more can be said for this film? "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" is as much a nostalgic picture of small town life (as is "The Music Man") as it is a family horror-mystery. The cast, led by Knotts is terrific, the production full of charm, and the musical score by the estimable Vic Mizzy, perfect. Despite the low budget, it looks like every penny got on the screen, and the film was a hit, so much so that it led to other Knotts vehicles such as "The Reluctant Astronaut" and "The Shakiest Gun in the West". They were enjoyable as well, but nothing tops this one! It was available as a widescreen DVD a couple of years ago, but it's no longer in print. It is now available as part of a set called "The Don Knotts Reluctant Hero" package. It's well worth getting while it still can be gotten! The original theatrical trailer is included, and the enhanced print is beautiful. And remember: "He saw those things!".

Great fun for kids and family...

This is a fun family comedy, that doesn't have the syrupy "message" nonsense you find in such movies today. This film hinges on Don Knotts and his trademark physical comedy, which he delivers with ease. I loved his movies as a kid, and my kids love them too.

It is amazing how much Knotts is willing to make himself look completely ridiculous to make you laugh. One such scene happens when he is courting his girlfriend on the porch of his boarding house. He starts to chop his hands in the air, she asks what he is doing, he replies "Oh that's karate, I've been studying it through the mail for years". Then he puffs up his chest and boasts, "My whole body's a weapon". You almost can't watch it, but my seven and nine-year-old sons make me rewind it over and over, laughing their heads off each time.

Introduce your kids to this, and other silly movies starring Don Knotts. They'll enjoy them, and it will give them a little insight into your world as a child.
