Time Of Their Lives, The (1946) - Brush With The British In Revolutionary War-era Nassau County, Long Island, with as fancy an opening as any Abbott and Costello movie, we meet lovely Marjorie Reynolds, Bud as servant Cuthbert, Anne Gillis as feisty Nora, who prefers Lou, as tinker Horatio, in the comic ghost romp The Time Of Their Lives, 1946.
Time Of Their Lives, The (1946) - How Can Us Be Down There?

Time Of Their Lives, The (1946) - It's You They're After Revolutionary War ghosts Horatio (Lou Costello) and Melody (Marjorie Reynolds), stirred to action by the arrival of Bud Abbott (as a descendant of Lou's old romantic rival) and friends at their Long Island estate, discovering their powers, Gale Sondergaard an attuned servant, in The Time Of Their Lives, 1946.
