Critic Reviews for Song of the Flame
It fails to sustain Interest because of the extreme conventionality of its plot. Everything has been sacrificed to the music, and to the picturesqueness of the settings, and these two features in themselves, are not enough to carry the day.
The singing, including the deep tones from Noah Beery, is most pleasing and so far as the story is concerned, it is, after all, with all its implausible romanticism, no worse than the tales of most musical offerings.
With Technicolor, which runs more smoothly later than earlier, the likeable background are Russian peasant mobs as the rule. At one time the film goes to the wide screen for a pleasant festival and this looks quite nice.
Audiences who like operetta and audiences in the country who have never had much chance to decide whether they like it or not may find Song of the Flame to their taste.
The coloring is gay and artistic, and the singing reproduces in something of an operatic atmosphere.
Of the operettas that have so far been produced, Song of the Flame seems to be the best. The reason for it is the fact that the beautiful color, the good acting, and the excellent singing are laid over an interesting plot.
