wolf song
11 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was shown tonight at Film Forum, NYC so possibly others will be posting.

Apparently the only known print in the world is held by LOC (with a negative). When there are no picture problems, the image is pristine and glowing, but there is a lot of nitrate decomposition, mostly during intertitles. And it's only about 55 minutes- the part-talkie version, since lost, apparently had Coper and perhaps his buddies singing (campfire songs?) A Paramount film + Lib of Congress only = no one ever sees this- get a TCM channel of your own already, Paramount! And don't suck like Fox Movie Channel! The plot summary at the top of IMDb's entry is accurate. Lupe Velez is pale and lovely and there are many shots of her bosom heaving rapidly as she is confronted with the proximate Cooper. There are nice love scenes and a dance scene when they meet. Cooper is bronzed and a little younger than we usually see him and photographed more crisply and lovingly than in THE VIRGINIAN of the same year. He wears an unusual curved-up cowboy hat and his upper torso is seen from behind as he shaves by a stream- but certainly not full-frontally in this print at least, as suggested in IMDb's entry. It's a nice film to get to see for the first time but there isn't that much to it, especially at such a short running time.
