Ghosts and Goblins

The Question:

When I was 12, I heard a ghost stomping down the old wooden stairs in my friends house in the middle of the night. Although I never saw it, I'm absolutely positive that it was the ghost of the guy who played the first Darren on Bewitched.

A free-roaming Dick York quasi-vapor. Quite common, in fact.

 Dr. Egon Spengler

However, I find details of your story questionable. How old are you?

 wolfcrazy

26

 Dr. Egon Spengler

Dick York didn't die until 1992. It was much more likely a full-torso Agnes Moorehead apparition.

 wolfcrazy

That was my second choice.

(who's Agnes Moorehead?)

 Dr. Egon Spengler

Endora.

*shudders* eeeewwww! that's even scarier than Darren!

 Dr. Egon Spengler

Quite. Did you know that she was one of the cast members of the ill fated film "The Conquerer", which was fimed in 1954 in the Nevada desert close by to where the government was doing certain nuclear tests. In later years those tests were suspected to have caused the cancer deaths of several of the films stars including John Wayne, Dick Powell, Susan Hayward, and Lee Van Cleef. So she probably wasn't very happy.


 Dr. Egon Spengler

Be glad it wasn't a full-fledged Van Cleef sighting. At 12 years old, I doubt you'd have recovered emotionally.
