Anna Karenina ( Betty Nansen ) is a married aristocrat and socialite living in Saint Petersburg. She is living a torrid romance with a wealthy and young count, he loves her and is willing to marry her once she leave her husband. However, Russian's society rejection makes her feel isolated, possessive and even paranoid due to her infidelity's suspicions which will lead eventually to her suicide.
This 1915 silent drama was the first American film adaptation of the novel by Leo Tolstoy. Produced by the Fox Film Corporation, directed by J. Gordon Edwards and starring Betty Nansen and Edward José, it was released on April 1, 1915. Sadly it now remains a lost film, a tragedy for silent cinema.
