Description by OLDIES.com:
The Phantom in the House is a first-rate early talkie featuring bold camera-work, a clever script full of unexpected twists, and a compelling performance by the great silent screen veteran, Henry B. Walthall as the self-sacrificing inventor, Boyd Milburn. Born in 1878, Walthall appeared as a woodsman in his first film, Rescued from an Eagle's Nest, at the age of thirty. By the time he played Col. Ben Cameron in D.W. Griffith's legendary masterpiece, Birth of a Nation, in 1915, he had already made almost 200 screen appearances. Walthall was at the center of the sound revolution, with roles in such early classics as Wings in 1927 and The Jazz Singer in 1929. He continued his busy 300-plus film career right up until his death in 1936.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 5 ratings.
The plot is the best part of the movie but this early talkie has a lot of the problems associated with early sound films. Poor editing...it's 1914; then all of a sudden it's 1929! Voice is not synchronized with the actors...common problem with lesser known movie studios. And, let's not forget a "musical number" in the middle of the picture to add some entertainment. Now, the actors in the movie go thru betrayal; wrong accusations in two murders; an interfering mother; deceptions; etc. and the last line of the movie is: "Let's all smile and be happy!"
