Creaky but OK
10 September 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Early talkie about young, fun-loving college student Ricardo (Ramon Novarro) being sent by his father from Madrid to Santiago to concentrate on his studies. Naturally he falls in love and predictable complications happen. No great movie, but a good chance to see young and very handsome Novarro acting and singing (he had a beautiful voice). I wonder why his career died shortly after this--he was extremely good-looking, a good actor and could sing (and dance). His being gay might have something to do with it.

The rest of the cast is pretty bad--especially Dorothy Jourdan (talk about overacting) and David Scott (even worse than her).

Also, the title is strange--it takes place in Santiago NOT Madrid! However, the title is kind of amusing considering Novarro's orientation. A previous poster wrote about the interplay between Novarro and costar Scott--he's right--the gay implications are there and they're strong. It does make one wonder is anything happened between Scott and Novarro. Anyways, this is an OK time waster. It's a must if you're gay--just to see Novarro!
