Nothing Wrong With This Movie a Few Title Cards Wouldn't Have Helped
I saw this film last night. It was the back end of a DVD that included the feature "His Master's Voice".
Fangs of Vengeance gets as much only as a "5" because of the dog. He's great. He's fast. I'm not a dog person, but I do like that dog.
But I found it all a bit confusing. Perhaps audiences of 1926 understood what was going on when men started fighting, but I frankly would have liked to have known what was going on.
One part that I could understand though, is apparently some guys are trying to bilk an older fella out of some valuable property he owns. They get the old man to sign it, but the dog, pretty danged brilliant apparently, starts chasing the bad guy who has the signed deed, knocks him down, gets it back and brings it back to the older fella. The final shot is of the dog, who is clearly the star of this short.
One thing does puzzle me, though. There's a guy with a mustache in this film who hangs around the bad guy, so I think he's a bad guy. Yet, he is in the final shot with the older fella, a girl (his daughter?), the dog's owner and the dog. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.
If you like seeing fast athletic dogs in action, go ahead and watch it. It's about 14 minutes long.
