- I know what the manager says:

One more guest, one more dollar.

I haven't got enough to pay my own bill.

Then the extra dollar

wouldn't matter.

Don't take your shoes off.

I've enough to aggravate me.

- Don't worry. I'll get you out of it.

- What with? You're broke.

I've gotta have $15

by noon tomorrow...

or lose the hall downstairs

and my deposit...

besides being kicked out of here

and my luggage held.

What about

the professor's spooks?

Don't they generally come through

with an advance sale?

Sure, when there's nobody

to stop them...

but there's a certain woman in this town

who doesn't believe in spooks.

What she says goes

for the rest of the women.

She's not only the daughter

of the former mayor...

who donated a new organ

to the church...

but the president

of the ladies' auxiliary.

Against such a combination,

not even I could sell one ticket.

Go charm her.

Miss Mills'll have no truck with me,

not even on the phone.

- Well, let's sleep on it.

- I said no.

We're in this thing together.

Naturally, I'll sleep here.

- Stands to reason.

- What stands to reason?

You're in trouble, man.

I've got to pull you out of it.

- You got any tooth paste?

- In the bathroom.

- [Door Opens]

- Hopeyou like my brand.

Good morning.

- Your mistress, please.

- Who?

Miss Clara Mills.

I'm Clara Mills, and we're

not buying anything either.

Miss Mills, I'm here to speak

on behalf of the dead.


-Walton's respected deceased.

They're having a rendezvous

tonight at the Walton Hotel at 8:00.

There's nothing to discuss.

I told you that over the phone.

Now please don't call again,

Mr. Ellis.

I'm not Mr. Ellis, and I'm not a part of

the spook act down at the hotel.

I'm Eric Stanton.

Now, would you listen to me for a minute?

Well, out with it.
