After a wolf blood transfusion, a man (George Chesebro) thinks he is becoming a wolf.
This film came to my attention as being "the first werewolf movie". Strictly speaking, that is not correct. The first werewolf movie is The Werewolf" (1913). However, as that film is considered to be lost, ore "Wolf Blood" can be called the earliest surviving werewolf film, which is the next best thing.
Although George Chesebro (who both stars and directs) is not a well-known name, perhaps he should be. The Minnesota-born film star appeared in more than 400 films between 1915 and 1954, which is nothing to sneeze at! Oddly, it gets to the wolf part until halfway through, first focusing on 1920s dance parties and lumber companies (reminding me of Howard Hawks' "Come and Get It"). Much of the werewolf part is told through possible hallucinations, and we are never completely convinced that he has joined the pack.
Interesting for what it is, but probably not a must-see.
