Delightful scenes of comedy alternate with dramatic thrills. Jack and Emily, just married, arrive at Emily's father's summer cottage. An armed tramp is already there, concealed. Queer sounds are heard in the house. Jack is followed by his ex-girlfriend who threatens to ruin his marriage; he counters with a threat to murder her. A few minutes later she is found murdered outside. The local Sheriff, a New York detective, and especially a neighbor who writes mystery stories try to solve the mystery. Several people are arrested, including the bride and finally her father, before the mystery turns out to be a humorous storm in a teacup. In the last act, all of the characters, having drunk a truth-potion, do indeed tell the truth with hilarious results. Funny and exciting.
The Haunted House was originally presented at the George M. Cohan Theatre in New York on September 2nd, 1924.
