Another sign it's October

Today is October 2, the second day in a month which will culminate on the 31st with Halloween. So it's only natural that we're going to start getting movies appropriate for the occasion. (At least we're not getting Christmas movies yet.) Tonight begins the first of five Thursdays in October in which TCM will be showing movies with ghostly themes. On this first night of the salute to ghosts, TCM will be showing ghost stories that have a bit more of a comic bent. It turns out that I've blogged about three of the night's entries before:

Roland Young plays banker Cosmo Topper at 8:00 PM, who learns how to enjoy life with the help of the ghosts of old friends George and Marion Kirby (Cary Grant and Constance Bennett).
Lou Costello plays a ghost from the Revolutionary War haunting Bud Abbott and his companions in The Time of Their Lives at 10:00 PM
Margaret O'Brien and a ghost help Robert Young become a hero in The Canterville Ghost, at 11:30 PM.
I don't know much about A Place of One's Own at 1:15 AM.
Ghostly Frank Morgan helps his family in The Cockeyed Miracle at 3:00 AM.
Finally, we get a Christmas-themed ghost story in the form of Beyond Tomorrow at 4:30 AM
