| Adventures In India With Ramon Novarro
A handsome young merchant prince must fight first for his life and then for his identity. But when he struggles to keep the love of a beautiful young American, he is reminded that he is still but a SON OF INDIA.

This is a decent little film, with good production values and MGM lavished a lot of care in making it look exotic. As regards the plot, Ramon Novarro is practically the whole story. Here he adds another portrait to his long series of ethnic interpretations.

Silent screen star Conrad Nagel appears as Novarro's American friend & a lovely Madge Evans plays his sister, Novarro's love interest. Marjorie Rambeau is given little do to as their unsympathetic aunt, while old Sir C. Aubrey Smith has a tiny role as a wise old English doctor.
