Storyline

When young Jean Germaine's father decreed that his son should not marry Lizette Rouget, unless the girl brought with her the sum of ten thousand francs. Jean, bowing to the inherited custom of generations, would as soon have thought of flying to the moon as of disobeying the parental command, Lizette was somewhat downcast when she learned the size of the required dowry, but soon brightened up and assured Jean that she would surely have it within a year, as a result of her clever embroidery work. But the end of the year found poor Lizette in a sorrowful state. Only a fifth of the required sum had been earned and Monsieur Germaine was beginning to grow insistent that his son should choose another bride. At her wits' end, Lizette readily accepted the offer of her brother, Paul, to increase the money to the proper amount by means of a certain investment.

The Haunted Bedroom (1913)

*** (out of 4)

A man and woman want to get married but his father refuses to grant his permission because the woman doesn't have any money. What little money the woman does have she gives to her brother so that he can gamble with it in hopes and making more. Before he can give her the money he dies but he is able to hide it in a location where he haunts the room so that no one else can find it.

THE HAUNTED BEDROOM comes from Edison and I must admit that it has one of the most far-fetched stories that you're ever going to watch. I won't ruin the ending but to say it gets somewhat laughable would be an understatement but at the same time there's no question that this two-reeler is mildly entertaining for what it is. I really enjoyed the special effects, which were pretty good for a 1913 film. The image of the "ghost" was nice and I thought it looked quite well and believable. It's certainly much better looking than the majority of CGI ghosts that haunt current movies.
