This dark comic thriller is a Hollywood remake of the 1927 silent film based on the play by John Willard, and stars Bob Hope in his first big role as Wallie Campbell, the not-so-brave protector of Joyce Norman (Paulette Goddard), an heiress who stands to inherit the fortune of her late uncle: an eccentric millionaire who made a proviso in his will that she must spend one night in his big eerie mansion without losing her mind if she wants to get her hands on his money. But his other potential heirs are determined to make the night as disturbing as they can, and make her fail the test...
