The Golden Age of Hollywood

This may well be one of the first werewolf movies in movie history. 1925 Wolf Blood was the tale of a logging camp foreman who is injected with the blood of a wolf in order to save his life. When a grizzly murder is discovered in the woods, he is blamed for it, and is convinced, himself, that he did the deed. There is more implied werewolfism than is shown, but it is an entertaining film never-the-less.
It starred George Chesebro, who also co-directed.
Has anyone seen it?

....I was just looking at the old 1941 Wolf Man Script book I have from the Magic Image series of Universal Scripts.In the Forwards before the Script,they mention a 1914 film called The Were-Wolf (theres even a foto from the film).Set in the Pacific Northwest with Indians and early white Settlers.....George Chesebro!..Thats interesting..I'm used to seeing him battling with Gene Autry or Tex Ritter..He was like the number 2 heavy in B-Westerns of the 30s and early 40s next to Charlie King..

Dave,

Well, I have a copy, but have never watched it. This picture was made in Canada by a local company. I don't know a whole lot about it. My print is pretty mediocre quality, and probably not complete?

John Gilbert actually Starred in a film called THE WOLF MAN in 1923 at Fox. I believe with Norma Shearer, but it is considered lost. I have a poster in here someplace. I'll see if I can find it? (Rummage-Rummage), OK, good news I found it! And here it is!

cool poster...looks like one of those "Camping trip gone wrong" movies...don't tell me thats a wolf with whiskers??(say that 10 times real fast!)

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
