Full Description: Epiphyllum Hybrid 'The Red Shadow' Has an XL bloom in red with cerise edge on inner petals. Hybridized By Don Burnett and registered/named by Ken Loomis.

The "Red Shadow" character was the hero in the 1926 musical operetta, "The Desert Song" by Sigmund Romberg and Oscar Hammerstein II. Three versions came out since. Gordon MacCrae starred as the actor and singer opposite Kitty Carlisle, (noted game show panelist) in one version and Kathyrn Grayson in the movie. Gordon Macrae played the mild mannered, archaeologist professor and tutor to the heroine Margot, who was the French Foreign Legion commandant's daughter. She was always dreaming of romance and adventure. Gordon Maccrae played a dual role and disguised himself as the "Red Shadow", the leader of the notorious band, a nomadic tribe in Morroco called the Riffs. He knew there culture, and they made him their leader; "The Red Shadow". Some very beautiful romantic songs came from this musical, such as "One Alone", the title song, "The Desert Song", "Romance", the "Riff song, etc.

Quote from Ken Loomis who named this Epiphyllum hybrid; "This operetta is one of my all time favorites."

The music video song clip below is from the 1950s movie "The Desert Song" and it hopefully gives you an idea who the leader of the 'Red Shadows' character was.
