In this 1929 crime drama movie, an inventor's wife kills someone and her husband takes the responsibility, being sent to prison for many years. When the husband is released, the husband wants to resume his family life but decides he won't disrupt his wife's and daughters new life of living off of the husbands invention royalties. The wife did not tell their daughter about his imprisonment so his wife and he pretends he’s a longtime friend of the family who knew her husband who is dead. Another similar murder is committed and it again looks like the husband is going to take the wrap for this one as well. This movie isn't one where you don't know who the killer is but a movie of understanding why people might protect others and assume responsibilities for the penalty of another person’s crime. I enjoyed the movie plot which moved along well and I thought the acting was pretty good.

Despite the title, this 1929 film is not a horror film with a ghost flying around. It is a murder drama--I wouldn't even put it in the mystery category. Ricardo Cortez is given top billing in this film, but Henry B. Walthall, my favorite actor, really has the leading role. Walthall is Boyd Milburn, an inventor who can't catch a break. His wife, Peggy, tries to gain the assistance of a man who can help her husband in exchange for her "friendship" (whatever that means). When the man gets fresh, she kills him. Boyd takes the blame for the murder and serves 15 years in prison, during which time he sends his wife illustrations of his inventions for her to patent under her name (which she's changed).

After he is paroled, he returns to find his wife living high off the hog in a posh hotel thanks to the money earned from his inventions. He also sees his daughter, Dorothy, who does not know he is her father. Wanting to protect his daughter from the knowledge that her father served time as a murderer, Milburn is introduced to her as Mr. Boyd, a friend of her father who she believes died as a war hero. Judge Thompson, who sent Milburn to prison and has since been a friend and protector of Peggy and Dorothy, tells Milburn he should leave his family for good so that his daughter will never know the truth about him. Milburn refuses, especially when his wife threatens to take away Dorothy's inheritance if she marries her true love, Paul (Cortez), a man of whom her mother disapproves because he does not have a fancy title. Milburn's wife learns to accept Paul (well, Boyd had to threaten her at first), but Judge Thompson is set on stopping the marriage. He schedules a meeting with Paul and tells him Dorothy's father was a murderer. He threatens to tell her the truth if Paul does not cancel the engagement.
