One for Charles King's legion of fans! He actually receives third billing here and thoroughly deserves that accolade. He's in the movie in almost every scene. The film is also of interest for the presence of Naomi Judge who enjoys a good innings in this one as Countess Lola Montaine, even though her pet monkey does do his level best to steal her scenes! In other respects, however, Young Blood is a pretty routine offering from Poverty Row, burdened with two or three glaringly obvious monetary short cuts. The best one can say of Phil Rosen's direction is that, given the film's tight budget, it's reasonably competent. The movie does tend to outstay its welcome, and it does seem to run longer than its official 56 DVD minutes, despite the gallant efforts of the players including much-in-demand silent star, Helen Foster, who plays our hero's love interest (she has a good voice too). But as I said right at the beginning, it's Charles King's movie and an absolute must- see for his many followers. Available on a very good Alpha DVD.
