The action of this comedy centers around a supposedly haunted house. Gardener Jeremy Foster (James Neill), in reality a burglar, has made sure the ghost rumors keep on circulating -- that keeps it a good rendezvous spot for his gang. But finally, in spite of the stories, some poor relatives of the deceased owner move in -- Lois Atwell (Louise Huff) and her widowed sister, Alice (Olga Grey). That same night, as part of a fraternity hazing, Ted Rawson (Jack Pickford) is obliged to spend the night there, too. And they're not the only ones; Spud (Eugene Pallette), a drunken member of the gang, is also there with some loot. Everyone thinks that they're seeing spooks, and for the better part of the film, Lois thinks that Ted is a burglar. It all gets straightened out in the end -- Ted battles the gang until help comes, and he and Lois wind up together. This film was directed by William C. De Mille, the lesser-known, but no less talented, older brother of Cecil B. De Mille.
