Movie Info

Looking to score a break as a newspaper reporter and impress beautiful Alma Parker (Joan Staley), milquetoast typesetter Luther Heggs (Don Knotts) pitches a story about his small town's haunted house. When his editor (Dick Sargent) insists Luther spend a night alone in the spooky mansion, where a grisly murder-suicide had taken place decades earlier, the timid reporter learns that the house contains a supernatural resident who doesn't like visitors.

Audience Reviews for The Ghost and Mr. Chicken

  • Jul 21, 2012
    Extremely tame mystery/comedy from an era of apparently less demanding audiences. By today's standards, this G-rater is too dull for kids and too simple for adults (except for those who think the <i>Austin Powers</i> sequels are filled with creativity.) Don Knotts does his shtick and gets a couple laughs. I watched much of this only because I had my right to choose taken away - I sure would have aborted if I could. Attaboy, Luther!
