Murnau's Third Film is among the LOST: synopsis follows.
13 September 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

A young Russian dancer in Geneva returns to Russia, where he falls in love with a grand duchess. He is arrested but manages to escape, searching for her until he is told she has died while he was in prison.

This is among the LOST films - no negative or positive materials are known to exist.
