Ghost House (1917) - Lost Silent Film
14 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The old Atwell home is said to be haunted, and Jeremy Foster ( James Neill ), the gardener, who is actually the head of a gang of robbers who use the house for a hideout, does his best to keep the superstition alive. Despite the rumours, impoverished sisters Lois ( Louise Huff ) and Alice Atwell ( Olga Grey ) decide to move into the empty family house. They take possession the same night that Ted Rawson ( Jack Pickford ) is ordered to explore the place as an initiation rite by his fraternity. That same night, Spud Foster ( Eugene Palette ), a member of his uncle's gang hides there with his stolen loot. In the middle of the night, Lois apprehends Ted and, believing him to be a burglar, takes him captive. The noise awakens Spud who, mistaking Lois for a ghost, flees the house. After much confusion, Lois' fears about Ted's character are allayed when he helps fight off the thieves, and relieved, she confesses her love to the fraternity boy.

The Ghost House was a 1917 American comedy silent film directed by William C. DeMille, starring popular actress Louise Huff and Jack Pickford. Released on October 1, 1917, by Paramount Pictures, it sadly remains a lost silent film.
