Movie Info

Caleb Judd (Spottiswoode Aitken) receives a request from his brother Joshua (Charles Ogle) to care for an infant rescued from an uprising in India. He is given a cache of jewels as incentive and raises the boy as his own. Amos Judd (Rudolph Valentino) grows up to attend Harvard and excels at athletics. He falls in love with Molly Cabot (Wanda Hawley), but has a premonition he will die before the two can marry. Caleb tells Amos he is the son of a Rajah when political rivals send assassins from India to kill him. Friends and family gather to protect Amos in this political drama. When the danger has passed, Amos returns to India by popular demand to replace the oppressive ruler who overthrew his father in this tepid drama.

Critic Reviews for The Young Rajah

All Critics (4)

Let it be said for the popular Rodolph that he does what he can to make The Young Rajah less foolish than it really is.

October 6, 2021 | Full Review…

Sumptuous in direction, presentation, cinematography, wardrobe and even in performance. [Full review in Spanish]

Whether The Young Rajah is a good picture or not we are not prepared to say, because we confess to being so enamored of Rodolph Valentino as an actor that the material which he handles makes little difference to us.

Valentino not asked to do much but grit his teeth and look determined.
