The Desert Song 1929

"The Desert Song" is the first all-singing and talking operetta to reach the screen and our only criticism is that the screen has not been fully utilized. Most of this picture was made six months ago and much talkie progress has been made since then. The real joy of the picture is John Boles, with his new screen personality and delightful baritone voice. Pictorially beautiful and interesting to music lovers.

Photoplay June 1929
