Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard's comic timing is excellent, and the works on which they are teamed together contain some of the funniest moments filmed by either actor. Hope plays Larry Lawrence, a New York City detective who becomes involved in a gangster-related hotel shoot-out. Believing he has killed a man, Lawrence hides in a trunk owned by Mary Carter (Goddard). When Lawrence gets out of the trunk, he finds himself on a steamboat, as Carter is en route to a castle which she has recently inherited on a small island off the coast of Cuba. While aboard the ship, Carter and Lawrence are aprised of rumors that the castle is haunted, but they remains steadfast in their will to visit it. Once there, many perilous and hilarious adventures await. The Ghost Breakers is widely heralded as the best of Hope and Goddard's combined efforts.

Mary Carter (Paulette Goddard - Cat and the Canary) inherits her family's ancestral home, located on a small island off Cuba, and, despite numerous warnings and death threats, she decides to take possession of the reputedly haunted castle.

She is joined by radio broadcaster Larry Lawrence Lawrence (Bob Hope) who believes to have killed a mobster, thus attending to flee to New York with his butler, Alex.

With assistance from Miss Carter, Lawrence soon defects from his original plan for a more spooky vacation on Black Island where all three enter an eerie castle as murder and mystery confronts them in this epic of a film.

As well as fighting off a menacing zombie, seeing a ghost of Mary's ancestor and finding the key to the castle's treasure, they're discovery is soon interrupted by the sudden appearance of the guilty party who's warnings to this point, had failed.

Strong performances from Paulette Goddard, Bob Hope, and Richard Carlson contribute to yet another masterpiece of a film.
