Smith, Thorne: The Jovial Ghosts. V1. 08 May 2010

James Thorne Smith Jr. (March 27, 1892–June 21, 1934), was an American writer of humorous supernatural fantasy fiction.

It all begins when Cosmo Topper, a law-abiding, mild-mannered bank manager, decides to buy a secondhand car, only to find it haunted by the ghosts of its previous owners--the reckless, feckless, frivolous couple who met their untimely demise when the car careened into an oak tree. The ghosts, George and Marion Kerby, make it their mission to rescue Topper from the drab "summer of suburban Sundays" that is his life--and they commence a series of madcap adventures that leave Topper, and anyone else who crosses their path, in a whirlwind of discomfiture and delight.

Is this the basis for the movie "Topper", starring Cary Grant and Constance Bennet?

Gosh i read all Thorne Smith's books as a teen fifty years ago, how nice to be able to revisit them....he was instrumental in leading me to fantasy.....along with Enid Blyton's Faraway tree series from earllier times, not to forget C S Lewis too....i could go on but need to get back to Thorne.
