Call Of Duty-Free

A scarecrow that's got human eyes!
And mares that all trot in disguise!
Grim brute and strange creatures
Are fruit of a preacher's
Not caring a jot for excise.

Donald B. Benson

Parson Peter Cushing secretly leads a band of smugglers in Captain Clegg aka Night Creatures (Terence Fisher; 1962). The scarecrow hid the smugglers’ lookout. The smugglers would disguise themselves -- and their horses -- as skeletons, far less convincingly than the posters suggest.
