The beautiful Russian princess Fedora's ( Pauline Frederick ) hopes of marrying Count Vladimir Androvitch ( Wilmuth Merkyll ) are dashed when he is shot by Loris Ipanoff ( Jere Austin ), who has discovered the count in his wife's rooms. Believing that Ipanoff killed her fiancée for political reasons, Fedora, accompanied by police official Gretch ( Alfred Hickman ), follows him to Paris and extracts a confession from him. The information she provides to the police's General Zariskene ( W. L. Abingdon ) leads to the deaths both of Ipanoff's brother, who is wrongly arrested and killed, and his mother, who succumbs from shock. Although he loves Fedora, Ipanoff tries to strangle her in his rage but is prevented by a knock on the door. The visitor informs him that Fedora was unaware of the circumstances of Vladimir's death when she planned her revenge, causing Ipanoff to rush back into the room just in time to prevent the guilt-stricken princess from taking her own life.
This 1918 silent drama was directed by Edward José, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred Pauline Frederick. Sadly, Fedora is now listed as a lost silent film.
