Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Set during Italy's swashbuckling past, Spirit of the Flesh stars Gino Cervi as a young adventurer and Dina Sassoli as his lady fair. The fly in the ointment is the wicked Don Rodrigo, played with an eternal sneer by Enrico Glori. Have at you, sir! You filthy cur! Spirit and the Flesh was based on a much-beloved Italian novel by Alessandro Manzoni.
