Uncle Josh spends some time in a spooky hotel.
In what way is this hotel spooky? Well, it has a ghost. What kind of ghost? One of those vengeance-driven, ravening soul-stealers? No, not quite. He’s one of those ghosts who likes practical jokes, such as punching your guest in the arm and vanishing so your guest will think it was you who punched him. Yes, one of those basically benign but annoying ghosts. And that’s pretty much all there is to say about this Edwin S. Porter short from the turn of the last century. And this is now officially the oldest movie I have covered in the series.
