House Peters at his best!
19 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Director: Herbert Blaché. Screenplay: Edward T. Lowe, Jr. Photography: John Stumar. Producer: Carl Laemmle. (This is one of the few films personally produced by Universal head, Carl Laemmle, who gives himself a double credit for the occasion! In actual fact, he probably had very little to do with the movie other than to approve its massive budget, but nevertheless…)

Copyright 9 March 1925 by Universal Pictures Corp. Los Angeles opening: 20 March 1925. U.S. release: 29 March 1925. 6 reels. 5,486 feet. Grapevine's five-reel Kodascope cutdown runs 52 minutes.

COMMENT: Wow! An all-action picture if ever there was one! True, the full-length picture probably zeroed in on the heroine's household a bit more. Arthur Hoyt, for example, is prominently billed – if I remember correctly, he plays one of the heroine's uncles – but in the five-reel version, he sits to one side and doesn't have a word to say. If you blink, you'll miss him. The full-length version also had a ridiculous sub-plot in which our hero is tried for kidnapping and sentenced to be hung – but it turns out to have been all a dream! Nevertheless, even in our Kodascope cutdown, we do see a lot of House Peters – an intriguingly surly hero if ever there was one – and the super-lovely, can't-make-up-her-mind heroine, Patsy Ruth Miller. The plot is easy to anticipate, but the director, Herbert Blaché, really knows how to stage convincing action. The lengthy storm sequence – moodily photographed by John Stumar – is one of the most exciting I've ever seen!
