This British-American, coproduction was released in England by Pathe, and in the US by Monogram. Blind Fools is the old bromide about all those parents who are too rich and busy to pay attention to their teenaged children. The kids' restlessness translate into Big Trouble, culminating in the standard-issue courtroom scene. The veteran actors in the cast-Herbert Rawlinson, Clare Whitney, Russell Hicks-are far more interesting than young nonentities playing their offspring. The lurid advertising campaign accompanying Blind Fools is offset by the film's austere approach to its material.
