This 1922 silent comedy/drama was based on the 1909 play The Ghost Breaker by Paul Dickey and Charles W. Goddard, and previously filmed in 1914 also called The Ghost Breaker by Cecil B. DeMille and Oscar Apfel. This version was directed by Alfred E. Green, produced by Famous Players-Lasky Company, starring silent screen actor Wallace Reid. Sadly it remains a lost silent film.
