Three Live Ghosts is a 1922 British comedy film directed by George Fitzmaurice. Alfred Hitchcock is credited as a title designer. The film is based on a 1920 Broadway play, Three Live Ghosts, by Frederic Isham. Actor Cyril Chadwick is the only performer from the play to appear in the film.[1][2] A copy of the film, thought to be lost, was found in a Russian archive and shown publicly in 2015.[3] This version had however been radically re-edited by Soviet censors in the 1920s, making the film a searing critique of post-war Britain, including its relations with Ireland, which achieved Dominion status in the year the film was first shown.[4]
