Valencia, also known as The Love Song, is a 1926 American silent romance film directed by Dimitri Buchowetzki, who came over from Paramount to direct. The film stars Mae Murray and features Boris Karloff in an uncredited role. The film was a box office hit and the title song, Valencia, was the top song in the U.S. for the year.


Handsome sailor Felipe (Hughes) and nasty Governor Don Fernando (D'Arcy) are rivals for the favors of Spanish dancer Valencia (Murray). When Felipe deserts his ship, Don Fernando throws him in prison, but Valencia obtains his release and shares his disgrace and exile.
