    I remember when I was a child a few decades ago seeing an old black and white comedy perhaps set in the present day when it was made but featured a spirit of a slightly child like man from around the 1700s named Horatio who wore a cocked hat from that time was wandering around in the physical world and perhaps people from the spirit world were trying to bring him back to the spirit world, calling out Horatio. So I wonder what the film is.

    I haven't seen this B&W comedy, but after a little searching it sounds like...
    The Time of Their Lives (1946) - IMDb
    Two ghosts who were mistakenly branded as traitors during the Revolutionary War return to 20th century New England to retieve a letter from George Washington which would prove their innocence.

    Gosh, thanks, and I started thinking a few minutes ago, maybe the man playing Horatio was a Lou Costello type. All these years I've been trying to work out what it could have been on the internet. Thanks, that must be it
