Critic Reviews for A Blind Bargain

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Somewhat fantastic, it takes a bit of stretching of the Imagination to swallow this story, and beyond the work of the star himself there Is nothing to raise this film above the average feature.

It is interesting at times, though, to watch Mr. Chaney, and some of Director Worsley's pictures are interesting, too.

Lon Chaney's work in this picture is really marvelous and he again demonstrates that he is one of the best if not the very best character actor on the screen.

And here, kind friends, we have the "entertaining" subject of monkey glands and their use in bringing nearer the fountain of eternal youth, made into a wild melodrama which can hardly be classified as being up to the usual Goldwyn standard.

Director Worsley has shown good judgment in the handling of the situations and he doesn't strive to overdo things usually although the atmosphere at times is a trifle too real.

A Blind Bargain is an interesting name, and so is the theme, but the picture is filled with nothing but promises.
