| Charming small-town antique
MAN HUNT is a painless and somewhat intriguing little film starring the ill-fated Junior Durkin as a would-be junior detective. Carl Gross is Junior's boy Friday and Charlotte Henry the lady in distress. Most interesting aspect of MAN HUNT is Joe Valentine's photography. Loaded with low camera angles and vertical tracking shots, it adds a fluidity to an otherwise pedestrian rural tale. Mrs. Wallace Reid is low key and quite natural as Junior's mother and former silent director Ed LeSaint has a nice role as the murder victim. It's quite old-fashioned and there's not much trickery involved in the solution to the crime but the winsome personalities of the entire cast make it an enjoyable seven reels.
