"Atta boy, Luther!!!" - THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN (1966)
What happens when you combine the comedic genius of Don Knotts, a haunted house, and a cast of hilarious character actors? You get the 1966 comedy classic, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken! For this special birthday episode of ScreamQueenz, we're joined by the fabulous TRAE DEAN from "DAMN YOU, UNCLE LEWIS!" and STEPHEN WANGNER, founder of the Don Knotts Appreciation Society, to discuss the sheer brilliance of this movie and its enduring legacy.
We'll dive into the wacky world of Don Knotts' comedy, explore the relationships between the film's unique characters, and celebrate the iconic lines that have withstood the test of time. From the charming Alma Cramer to the sly humor of Gaylord Patty, this film is jam-packed with laughs and memorable moments. Plus, believe it or not, there is actually some genuine queer representation in this film!
