Abstract:

"Talkie-era musicals were usually all-star revues or tales of backstage heartache and triumph. [This film] -- based on a 184-performance, 1927 operetta co-created by Oscar Hammerstein II -- ambitiously breaks free of those musical confines to expand the genre's cinematic reach. Set in World War I-era Africa, it tells the tale of Dawn, a tribal woman love with a British soldier but chosen to be the sacrificial bride of a god ... The film was originally shot and released entirely in color (another example of the production team's ambitiousness), but color prints have unfortunately long been lost."--Container.
