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. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Prime Don Knotts with Barney Fife patented laughs."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"The Ghost and Mr. Chicken is, overall, a very sweet-natured comedy. It's just the thing to watch when you are sick of foul-mouthed puppets [and] flatulent grade-schoolers..."
‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"Unusually good Knotts vehicle with atmosphere and a great creepy organ piece."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"For youngsters who hadn't experienced anything stronger than the attack of the ping-pong balls on 'Captain Kangaroo,' 'Mr. Chicken' -- with its spooky organ music, blood-dripping portrait and haunted 'murder house' -- was deliciously traumatic..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
