Resurrection (1918) - Lost
14 June 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Katusha ( Pauline Frederick ), a young peasant who serves as a companion to Prince Nekludov's ( Robert Elliott ) two maiden aunts, accepts the amorous attentions of the prince on one of his visits to her little Russian village. Forced to confess that she is pregnant with Nekludov's child, she is turned out of the house by the scandalized aunts and forced to have her baby all alone in a peasant's ramshackle barn. After the child's death, Katusha becomes a prostitute, and several years later, she is sentenced to exile in Siberia for a murder she did not commit. Nekludov, one of the jurors, promises to secure the czar's pardon for Katusha, but on her journey to the frozen North, she falls in love with a prisoner named Simonson. Spiritually regenerated, she refuses Nekludov's remorseful offer of marriage and remains with the man who loves her.

This 1918 silent drama was produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred the popular actress Pauline Frederick. Sadly, Resurrection now remains a lost silent film.
