Whatever lift the new Topper offers is found in the superb capering of Eddie (Rochester) Anderson. For the most part, however, this picture can t decide whether it's high comedy, mystery melodrama or burlesque. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Roland Young is funny
Rating: 4/5 -- Really funny sequel that outdoes its predecessors.

Rating: B -- The third and last of the Topper series, which began in 1937 with Cary Grant, combines mystery, comedy, and special effects. Full Review
The movie is very interesting and fun, with the enthusiasm of truculent mysteries that are always very appealing to the public. [Full review in Spanish] Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
The third in the Topper comedy- mystery series, Cosmo (Roland Young) is besieged by a wisecracking ghost (Joan Blondell) who demands that he help her find her killer. The story is set in Carrington Hall, a magnificent old haunted house, complete with a cloaked villain who comes and goes through walls. Falling chandeliers, secret passages, and a trap door with a chute that leads to an underground tunnel adds to the mystery. The cast of characters includes a malevolent butler, a straightlaced housekeeper, a frightfully playful seal, the disappearing body of Joan Blondell, and Topper's chauffeur "Rochester" who is afraid of the invisible ghost's antics. Excellent special effects and outstanding performances by an all-star cast provides delightful entertainment.
This third entry in the TOPPER comedy film series--TOPPER (1937) and TOPPER TAKES A TRIP (1939)--follows the mild-mannered Topper on the trail of a phantom killer. While visiting a stately castle, a young woman is knifed to death on the eve of her friend's twenty-first birthday, upon which day she is to receive the family fortune. When Topper is asked by the recently deceased's ghost to investigate the murder, he finds himself accused by a bumbling detective.
