Not a werewolf in sight, but a charming picture nonetheless!
A nascent werewolf picture which, despite its promising premise, carefully avoids a descent into lycanthropy, this "tale of the forest" will disappoint most horror fans. However, it does have other points of interest including its attractively tinted location photography and its fascinating cast headed by the famous silent star, the charming Marguerite Clayton, here nearing the end of her 180-movies career!
Doubtless for reasons of economy, George Chesebro was handed the reins to direct many of his own scenes. Unfortunately, he opted to adopt the clownish make-up he sported in the 1920 serial, "The Lost City", and he looks a real sight with his ghost-white face, black-rimmed eyes and painted smile. And this is before he thinks he might turn into a werewolf!
Chesebro is joined by his sidekick pal from "The Lost City", Frank Clark, but it's prolific character actor Milburn Morante who easily steals this picture from both of them.
The scenes directed by Bruce Mitchell are much smoother and far more natural than the Chesebro footage. And in his delightfully foot-tapping, jazz party sequence, the beautifully tinted images often give the lustrous impression of early two-strip Technicolor.
