    A ripping adventure yarn. A rollicking buddy picture. The earworm score. Gorgeous location work. And a cast who persistently know just what the material requires. 

    Oh, and seeing it on the big screen at my favorite theater ever, after 16 months away❤️💗💖

    Call of the Flesh

    One of those early talkies where actors didn’t realize they don’t have to be so demonstrative or deliver their lines in the most overwrought ways. 

    Novarro was pretty good though.

    Needs a sequel where we see how Reaganomics deunionized Norma's plant.

    The old argument goes that the showmanship of Griffith's film outweighs its deplorable racism; that argument, however, is full of shit. (There were far better silent films that advanced film grammar without any of the hideous ideology.)
