Directed by Raoul Walsh, 103 min, USA. With Dolores Del Rio, Charles Farrell, Ivan Linow.

The Russian Revolution propels a humble peasant girl (Dolores Del Rio) to fame as the “Red Dancer of Moscow,” while she secretly maintains her love for the deposed grand duke (Charles Farrell) she was once ordered to kill. For director Raoul Walsh, it’s another opportunity to create a rollicking adventure film, with Grigori Rasputin and Leon Trotsky among the supporting characters. Fun fact: During his 1917 American exile, the real Trotsky worked as an electrician in Fox’s New York studio. Piano accompaniment by Makia Matsumura.
