The Ghost Breaker was an American silent film comedy based around haunted houses and ghosts. It was produced Famous Players-Lasky and distributed through Paramount Pictures. It was directed by Alfred E. Green and starred popular Wallace Reid in one of his last screen portrayals. The story, based on the 1909 play The Ghost Breaker by Paul Dickey and Charles W. Goddard, had been filmed before in 1914 by Cecil B. DeMille and Oscar Apfel. The film would be made again in the sound era as The Ghost Breakers with Bob Hope and as Scared Stiff starring Jerry Lewis. The 1922 version is now considered a lost film.
