Trouble for John Gilbert
4 December 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In Russia, irresponsible John Gilbert (as Fedor aka Fedya Protasoff) becomes attracted to lovely Eleanor Boardman (as Lisa), but she is engaged to old school chum Conrad Nagel (as Victor Karenin). While they work out their sexual urges, Mr. Gilbert must also deal with an ongoing attraction to vagabond gypsies, especially alluring Renée Adorée (as Masha). Her parents steal a scene by picking Gilbert's pockets. Born to Ms. Boardman, an intriguing baby is seen only briefly. This early "talkie" was planned as Gilbert's first feature in the popular new medium; he reportedly detested the film, and release was delayed until after "His Glorious Night" (1929). "Redemption" looks like they could not get it right. This resulted in a second blow to Gilbert's film career.

*** Redemption (4/5/30) Fred Niblo ~ John Gilbert, Eleanor Boardman, Renee Adoree, Conrad Nagel
