The Ghost Breaker was a 1914 American silent drama film directed by Cecil B. DeMille and Oscar C. Apfel and based on the Broadway play of the same name by Paul Dickey and Charles W. Goddard. The film was distributed by Paramount Pictures under the Famous Players-Lasky banner.[1]

The Ghost Breaker considered widely to be the first film of a long line based on the genre of haunted house horror. The film was remade in 1922 with Wallace Reid and Lila Lee, and again in 1940 with Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard, and as Scared Stiff (1953) with Martin and Lewis.[2] The film is now considered lost.[3]
