4 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Princess Triloff (Alla Nazimova), an emigrant from Czarist Russia, escapes to America where she becomes a patron of the arts. She falls in love with the verses of impoverished poet Owen Carey (Charles Bryant) and becomes his anonymous benefactor. When Owen inherits a fortune from his rich Uncle Krakerfeller (also Charles Bryant), he assumes his uncle's identity and confers his own upon an impoverished friend, Frank Manners (William Irving). At a resort, Owen meets the princess and falls in love with her, but is chagrined to discover that she is enamoured with Manners. The princess finally discovers Owen's real identity and the two fall in love. However, when a later will rescinds Owen's inheritance, he becomes intimidated by the princess' wealth and sulks away to his garret. The princess follows him and they are happily reunited in poverty when she discovers that her fortune has been confiscated in the revolution.

This 1920 comedy/romance was based on the play L'Homme riche by Jean Jose Frappa and Henry Dupuy-Mazuel. The film was produced by Nazimova Productions and distributed by Metro Pictures Corporation. Starring actress Alla Nazimova, it's status is now listed as unknown.
