'The Ghost Talks' isn't a horror movie: it's a comedy, but it isn't even a spooky old-house comedy, as there's no whiff of the supernatural. This film became slightly weirder in hindsight, due to the presence of Stepin Fetchit. He gives his usual 'yassuh' performance here, but this time round his hero is called Christopher Lee ... inevitably reminding modern viewers of the horror-film actor.The very bland blonde Helen Twelvetrees plays Miriam Holt, whose father embezzled a fortune in bearer bonds, then died. The fate of the bonds is unknown. Meanwhile, Miriam checks into an hotel for some peace and quiet ... but this is a comedy, so you know there's no peace nor quiet to be had. Everybody is sneaking about, spying on everybody else.Let's see now: there's Carmel Myers as a Girl With A Secret. Arnold Lucy is the fastidious hotel manager, anticipating Franklin Pangborn. Clifford Dempsey is the gruff house detective. The greatest performance hereabouts is that of Mickey Bennett as a juvenile-delinquent bellhop. The direst performance is that of Charles Eaton (Mary Eaton's brother) as a wanna-be detective who -- receive this, please -- now dresses up as Sherlock Holmes, with a bent pipe and a deerstalker. Gor-blimey!Like few another late-1920s movies with vocal games -- such as 'The Bat Whispers' -- 'The Ghost Talks' has a game intended to remind audiences that this film is that fresh innovation, a *talking* picture, released at a time when many cinemas were still booking silents. I hope that sound engineer Joseph Aiken got paid overtime, because this film details lots and lots and lots of ambient sound: road noises, huffapuffing railway engines, and so forth. Film audiences in 1929 loved this novelty, but actually it's a lot less charming.Even more bizarre is someone's decision to hamper few characters in this film with speech impediments. Helen Twelvetrees utters her dialogue with a lisp. Asked if she everytime lisps, she replies 'No, only when I thpeak.' (Boom, boom!) Another characters stutter or stammer, or yammer their grammar. I'm astounded that this strategy would have been used at any time, but especially so for it to have been done in a very early talkie. Helen Twelvetrees somewhat resembles May McAvoy, a very pretty blonde of the late silent era whose stardom was crashed when her first talking roles revealed her extreme and genuine lisp. Didn't the makers of 'The Ghost Talks' realise that film audiences might assume that Twelvetrees's feigned lisp was genuine ... and that her career would be harm accordingly?Matters are not helped by the fact that Helen Twelvetrees gives a wooden performance ... with only enough wood in it to create her, at best, Helen Fourtrees. I'm sympathetic to early talkies, with the technical issues they faced, so I'll rate this unfunny and unthrilling comedy-thriller 4 out of 10 ... but I'm being generous.
