Three Live Ghosts is a 1929 American Pre-Code comedy film directed by Thornton Freeland and starring Beryl Mercer, Harry Stubbs, Robert Montgomery, and Tenen Holtz. Three veterans of World War I return home to London after the armistice, only to find they have been mistakenly listed as dead.[1] It was based on the play Three Live Ghosts by Frederic S. Isham.

Made in the early sound era when Hollywood savored any successful play and its dialogue, this film is a rendition of the Broadway play and also a remake of the 1922 Paramount silent, Three Live Ghosts. Mercer, McNaughton, and Allister would reprise their roles for a 1936 remake produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
