Comments about Blackbird, The:

I'm glad that Warner Archive released this one, but I found it to be a bit disappointing given that it was a Chaney-Browning production. It does have it's quirky touches, but is not as much fun as their other films together. It's still a good movie, and boasts a new score for this release. Check out THE UNKNOWN, WEST OF ZANZIBAR, and THE UNHOLY THREE(1925 version) to see Chaney-Browning at the peak of their weirdness.

    Comments about Blackbird, The:

    Unlike "West of Zanzibar" and "The Unholy 3" for example, which were released on laserdisc in years past, I do not believe "The Blackbird" had a previous laserdisc release so it is great to be able to own it on DVD. It is rare and as always Warner Archive does a nice job in the transfer. The film looks crisp and clear. The story involves Chaney as an underworld criminal and he also plays his kindly twin brother, a minister. In fact, the character of Dan Tate (Chaney) secretly takes on the role of the Bishop so as to keep the cops from catching up with him. Chaney is wonderful as always, playing the evil Tate and the gentle and kind Bishop effectively. He seemingly slips in and out of these characters easily and we even get to see him do this as he hides behind a door and yells like Tate, pretending to be shouting at his twin the Bishop. This is an interesting story and I highly recommend it.
