The Haunted Pajamas is a 1917 comedy-drama film directed by Fred J. Balshofer. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Francis Perry Elliott.[1] A copy of the film survives.[2]


Richard Hudson receives a pair of silk pajamas from a friend that can transform a person into another person. When he puts the pajamas on, he turns into a fighter, but returns to normal the next day. Throughout the film, two more characters put on the pajamas, and they are mistaken for two other characters in the film. The film ends with the characters burning the pajamas.[3]
