Movie Info

A half-breed Indian girl marries simply to spite her dad, leading her down a path of illegitimate birth and prostitution before she meets a fellow of similarly mixed heritage who wants to take care of her. This oddball melodrama featuring faded silent star Clara Bow is a grab-bag of raunchy pre-code delights.

Call Her Savage is problematic, boring dribble

February 1, 2022 | Full Review…

Prostitution, 'half-breeds,' cross-dressing, cat fights, dog-wrestling, 'wild poets,' wagon-train lechery and rampant bralessness are among the consistently jaw-dropping elements of this rollicking 1932 melodrama,

Entertaining pre-Code drama, with a vibrant Clara Bow at full-throttle speed.
