Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Passion Song was directed by Harry Hoyt, a talented hack best known today for his work on the landmark sci-fi/fantasy endeavor The Lost World. Set in South Africa, the film stars Gertrude Olmstead as Elaine Van Rynn, the wife of Dutch military officer John Van Rynn (Noah Beery). When Elaine falls in love with Van Rynn's best friend, British-born Keith Brooke (Gordon Elliot), the latter loyally resists her attractions. Even so, Van Rynn orders that Brooke be tortured to death by a local native tribe. All that saves the hero from this horrible fate is Van Rynn's murder at the hands of vengeful Chief Ulamba (Blue Washington).
