The Ghost Breaker (1922) -- Lost Silent
24 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Trying to escape from a Kentucky mountain family feud, Warren Jarvis ( Wallace Reid )meets and agrees to help Maria Theresa ( Lila Lee ) rid her father's castle of ghosts and find a treasure thought to be hidden there. He discovers that the "ghosts" are hired by the Duke D'Alva ( Arthur Carewe ), a neighbour of Maria Theresa's who hoped to find the treasure and marry her. Warren and Maria find no gold but a greater treasure, love.

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.
