A ghost uses a fake medium to get revenge on a pair of fellow gamblers who took him for big money when he was alive.

A phony medium bilks people ouf of money with the help of her out-of-work actor partner. At one séance, a real ghost appears, that of a gangster crook now in limbo until he purges his heart of hate. The ghost is probably going about it the wrong way, and the two are forced into helping him . The first act is quite amusing with the gangster rap 30’s style. Brilliant title too. The story was fun and explores the range of morality and individual concepts of right and wrong.

In fact, I liked this one. As I get older, I tend to enjoy "poetic justice" less and "change of heart" more. I wish real life worked that way. Ghost story.

A story in which you expected one ending and got another. Overall a good story and good acting. I wonder if the person who wrote the movie Ghost ever heard this one.
