The first three photos of this collection are from The Pagan (1929) with Ramon Novarro as the title character, a half white-half native young man in love with Renee Adoree, a native girl under the stern guardianship of white man Donald Crisp.
Also in the film were Thomas Mitchell (who played Scarlett's father in Gone with the Wind that same year) and Mary Astor. (This film was remade in 1979 and you can read all you'd ever want to know about it here and also towards the bottom of the page here.)
He's seen below with Olympe Bradna, a French dancer and actress who left the biz after a few years to enjoy a seventy-year-long marriage to a California social notable.
Also wrapped up in the story is Jeff Chandler as Paget's brother (!) and who is caught in a pretty wretched brown wig.
You can read (and see) more of the handsome Mr. McCrea here.
