The Ghost in the Garret (1921) - Lost Silent ?
19 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Delsie O'Dell ( Dorothy Gish ) is framed for stealing some pearls while staying at the country home of her aunt and uncle, Mr. ( Downing Clarke ) and Mrs. Dennison ( Mrs. David Landau ). She is banished from their house and along with her bulldog, Violet, follows Oscar White ( Ray Grey ), the actual thief, to an old haunted house, which is the hideout for a gang of thieves. A series of humorous escapades follows as she first hides from the thieves, then pretends to be a ghost, terrorizing them. Eventually she retrieves the pearls, clears her name, and is safe once again in the arms of Bill Clark ( William Parke Jr. ), Dennison's secretary.

This 1921 silent comedy/drama was produced by the New Art Film Company, starring popular comedienne Dorothy Gish. Tragically, The Ghost in the Garret remains another one of the actresses lost silent films.
