With too many laughs (intentionally and unintentionally provoked) to be a straight mystery, this comedic adventure anticipated, somewhat clumsily, more recent forays in macabre humor. When Seegar's father disappears and seemingly reappears as a corpse, Seegar and von Eltz get mixed up in a

political cover-up perpetrated by undertaker Richmond. The mystery unravels and Littlefield resurfaces alive, but not before the big fight scene and some ghostly encounters in a graveyard. This was the first directorial credit for Humberstone, who had long labored as an assistant. He was aided by

the skillful camerawork of Edeson and fine performances by Littlefield, Pallette, and Pitts.
