Le Chanteur de Seville is the French-language version of the Technicolor MGM musical drama Call of the Flesh. Ramon Novarro repeats his role as Juan, a young aspiring singer who is advised that he will never achieve greatness until his heart is broken. He learns the truth of this admonition when he falls in love with convent girl Lola (Pierette Caillol). Their brief, torrid romance proves to have unfortunate consequences, breaking not only Juan's heart but also his will to live. Though the original Call of the Flesh was directed by Charles J. Brabin, the French version was helmed by its star, Ramon Novarro, who did a commendable job.
