The Man Who Took a Chance Reviews:

Fortunately for "The Boy Who Took a Chance," a five-reel Bluebird photoplay, in which Franklyn Farnum is the central figure, the storyline need not be taken seriously. It relates the journeys of a young chap who falls in love with a girl's photograph, meets the original and is made the topics of a scheme to use his courage. The heroine's mother has a weakness for games and the character passes himself off as an English nobleman; hence the girl's reason for playing his fighting blood. Ranch life and glimpses of the better grade of western society are mingled throughout the picture. During the use the action becomes strenuous, but, for the most part, more attention has been paid to developing bits of quiet humor than to keeping the storyline moving ahead with any noticeable degree of speed. William Worthington, the director in charge, has been consistent to the material at hand, and a number of the scenes have much pictorial merit. Many screen patrons will search the picture fairly entertaining. Franklyn Farnum enters into the spirit of his part as if he enjoyed testing it, and makes the young fellow who wins the heiress an ingenuous mortal who is easy excused for not suspecting that his war with the cowboys is a put-up job. Agnes Vernon offers sufficient reason for her admirer's infatuation, and Lloyd Whitlock, Countess du Cello, Marc Fenton, Charles Perley and Arthur Hoyt give a nice acc of their few allotments. – The Moving Picture World, February 17, 1917
