Surreal Film Adventure
2 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Odd little film that stars Madge Bellamy as a Canadian girl who runs away from the circus her step-father owns because of his abusive ways. She takes her pet elephant Oscar with her (of course) and hides out in the deep woods until one day they come upon a small village that is run by an abusive man (Noah Beery). She also finds a lame violinist (Cullen Landis) who is a special victim of Beery's.

Bellamy is put to work in a kitchen while Beery continues to run the town. After Landis buys Bellamy a dress, Beery goes nuts so they run away with Oscar still trying to find them. The escape down river in canoes is well done.

A surreal film that almost plays as a fairy tale, THE SOUL OF THE BEAST has some very good moments involving the talented elephant. The three stars are all quite good. Beery was a major villain of the silent screen. Bellamy was a big star. Landis is best remembered as the male lead in the first all talking picture: THE LIGHTS OF NEW YORK.
