Storyline

Buxley Hall is a military academy founded by General Buxley about a hundred years ago. Today, it's been beset with financial problems so Buxley descendant and the commandant of Buxley Hall decides that the best way to save it, is to merge with an all-girls school. This doesn't sit well with the General, who as a ghost along with his Sergeant does what they can to get rid of them. Also new to Buxley is Jeremy Ross, an heir to a fortune who is currently in the custody of his uncle. However, his aunt who wants him so that she could gain access to his fortune is doing what she can to do that or get rid of him. The sergeant comes to Jeremy's aid and eventually befriends him.

Cruela DeVille tries to take over Buxton Military Academy
30 October 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I think that The Ghosts Of Buxley Hall might have been a big screen project for Dean Jones. Certainly Monte Markham plays a most Jones like character as the head of the military academy that is about to go coed. But Jones might not have been available so this was relegated to the made for TV status.

Poor Markham is beset by the fact that women with their own dean and chaperon are about to invade his male domain. More opposed to it than Markham is the founder of the academy Dick O'Neill who together with his wife Louise Latham and his sergeant Victor French roam the Academy halls as spirits. As ghosts they do their business to scare that notion out of everybody.

One of the new students is orphan millionaire Rad Daly whose aunt Ruta Lee and uncle Vito Scotti are trying to get control of his millions. The ghosts, particular Victor French take an interest in his situation.

In fact by the time of the climax everyone realizes that it's to their rational self interest to stop Lee and her machinations. Ruta Lee is having a ball in this role playing her own version Cruela DeVille.

This is a nice easy to take Disney film and does credit to all involved.
