Call of the Flesh Reviews:

Ramon Novarro is really nice in this fairly ordinary movie about a young singer and his love for an innocent girl. The plot calls on him to sing a lot - and he does so quite brilliantly. He is also named upon to go through some cute massive emotional items and he is nothing short of astonishing in these scenes. Also he demonstrates his usual charm, wit and joy of life - and proves yet again that he deserved better material than MGM offered him.It's simple to see why this sweet movie was so famous in its day, and why it was re-made twice (in Spanish and French) in 1931, with Ramon starring in and directing both versions. It's all impossibly romantic and quite charming.Ramon's regular leading lady, Dorothy Jordan, is cute nice here, Ernest Torrence hams a bit as Ramon's dad, and Renee Adoree is unbelievable in her last screen performance (she died very young of TB) - just as in "The Pagan" her love for Ramon is unrequited and she is ultimately self-sacrificing. Russell Hopton is, unfortunately, wooden as Jordan's brother and, as a consequence, his crucial climactic stage with Ramon does not work as well as it could have.Charles Brabin's direction and the screenplay are uninspired, but the movie is worth seeing for Ramon Novarro's extraordinary performance.


I watched The Call of the Flesh and enjoyed it despite the dueling accents. Ramon Novarro plays a saucy singer who squads with Renee Adoree to appear at local cantinas and is pushed by his mate (Ernest Torrence) to receive serious about opera. But then he meets a "runaway" from a convent (Dorothy Jordan) who knows nothing of the world. He falls in love and dumps Adoree. But Adoree gets even by finding Jordan's military brother who tracks them down and sends her back to the convent. Meanwhile Novarro is turned down by a local opera house because he's never had his heart broken and his singing has no soul. Torrence buys a night for Novarro to sing at the opera and he grudgingly does to, bringing down the house. But his heart is so broken he's now dying until Adoree takes action.Novarro is quite nice here, especially when singing. A several of the dramatic scenes are badly done, but the rest of the movie is lively. Novarro co-wrote the song "Lonely" with Herbert Stothart. I have no concept what Novarro sings in the finale but he's nice despite having rather thin high notes. It's quite a shock to see Torrence break out in song, but the burly Scottish actor, a dependable massive in silent films, was a trained opera singer. Jordan and Adoree handle the melody well.There's a nice stage where Torrence at the piano joins Novarro in a explode of song only to be joined by the landlady (Mathilde Comont). It all seems so spontaneous.Sadly this was Adoree's final film. Her another talkie was Redemption with John Gilbert.


This is one of my favourite movies of all time. I loved each character, and each actor and actress. The movie is charming. It is serious, funny, heartwarming; and the melody is both charming and beautiful. This storyline gotta have been written with Ramon Novarro, Dorothy Jordan, and Renee Adoree in mind; but the entire cast is "perfect". I want that this movie will someday be accessible on video. Some may search this movie naive or too simplistic, but it's innocence and sincerity overwhelm me.
