Storyline

An American dancer on a tour of pre-Boleshevik Russia falls for a young army officer, and the feeling is mutual. However, the officer's father is the Grand Duke of Russia, and he has designs on the girl himself--not letting a minor detail like his already being married bother him--and refuses to let his son marry her. Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Delightful romantic comedy of mistaken identities
24 November 1999 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This delightful farce has an Isadora Duncan-like dancer performing in Russia, protecting her dashing Russian lover while fending off a lecherous Grand Duke [and his jealous Grand Duchess]. At a provincial hotel, she and her lover are mistaken for the Grand Duke and Duchess and must keep up the royal charade. The real royalty, when they arrive, are of course treated as imposters, with many comic complications. Constance Talmadge and Tullio Carminati prove to be not only expert comedians but also share pleasing romantic chemistry. The direction is sophisticated and fast-paced, and only the Grand Duke is allowed to occasionally overplay his performance. The title is ironic, as Talmadge is definitely not the Grand Duchess. Oddly, while the setting seems contemporary to 1926, the presence of royalty suggests that the Russian Revolution never took place! Once again, Hollywood treats history elastically.
