Best for Pola Negri and as an early Hollywood Lubitsch work
30 November 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A humorous look at the love life of Catherine the Czarina (Pola Negri), ruler of a backward land in 1920's Eastern Europe.

The Lubitsch touch is already present and Pola Negri gets many closeups to act the diva in. The other actors is OK and the costumes and sets are first rate.
