Description by OLDIES.com:
In a South Seas paradise, a carefree half-caste (Ramon Novarro) whiles away his time with music and laughter...until the white guardian of the native girl he loves tries to take the young beauty for his wife. Novarro's handsome physique and his fine tenor turning "The Pagan Love Song" into a hot-selling Victrola sensation helped make The Pagan one of 1929's biggest hits. W.S. Van Dyke (The Thin Man, San Francisco) helmed this silent with synchronized musical sequences, the second of his three filmed-on-location exotic adventures (the others: White Shadows in the South Seas and Trader Horn) that gave Jazz Age audiences jungle fever.
In this early talkie, a musical, a Polynesian storekeeper bears his chest and sings. He also falls in love with an island girl and rescues her from a lecher who tries to force her into a marriage.
