Today's Short: "Ghost Busters (1954)"


What would Ghostbusters look like if it was made 30 years earlier? Who would be playing Ray, Peter and Egon, in place of the great 80's trio? If you have a hard time imagining it, here's a faux-trailer by YouTube user/filmmaker "whoiseyevan" that imagines what Ghostbusters would look had it been released in 1954, starring Bob Hope as Ray Stantz, Dean Martin as Peter Venkman, and Fred MacMurray as Egon Spengler. Bonus: Jerry Lewis as Louis Tully! I'm pretty surprised at how well this works, too.
