Flesh and Blood
Lon Chaney Sr. plays David Webster, an honest lawyer unjustly sentenced to a 15-year jail term. Upon his release, Webster adopts a disguise so that he can get even with Fletcher Burton (Ralph Lewis), the man who framed him. The ex-convict is compelled to alter his plans when Burton's son (Jack Mulhall) falls in love with Webster's daughter (Edith Roberts). Noah Beery Sr. tries manfully to steal scenes from Lon Chaney in the role of inscrutable Oriental Li Fang. Most video versions of Flesh and Blood run 55 minutes, and are equipped with a new musical score. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Nomads of the North
Author James Oliver Curwood's tales of the Northwest were made into so many motion pictures that it seems like he alone is responsible for every Mountie cliché that was committed to cinema. Case in point is this picture: Raoul Challoner (Lon Chaney in a rare romantic role) is in love with Nanette Roland (Betty Blythe), but while he is in the North, Buck McDougall (Francis MacDonald) tries to steal her away by claiming that he is dead. Challoner, however, reappears just in time to halt the wedding. Later he gets in a fight with McDougall and one of his cronies; the crony is killed and Challoner and Nanette flee to the North woods. A Mountie, Corporal O'Connor (Lewis Stone), is assigned the task of arresting Challoner, but McDougall gets there first. He tries to kidnap Nanette while Challoner is away, but she is rescued by his pets -- a dog and a bear. A forest fire breaks out and Corporal O'Connor saves Nanette, but leaves McDougall behind to burn to death. Instead of getting his man, O'Connor tells Challoner that he will tell his superiors that he died in the fire, thus leaving him to go free. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
