Movie Info

Luther Heggs (Don Knotts) is a typesetter at a newspaper who longs for a chance to be a reporter. Editor Beckett (Dick Sargent) gives Luther his big break and assigns him to spend the night in a house generally considered to be haunted. The situation allows a broad canvas for Knotts to react to sight gags with the special brand of eye-popping nervousness that made him a star. Former Playboy Bunny Joan Staley plays the pretty girlfriend of star reporter Ollie Skip Homeier.

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!
