Interesting mainly for historical reasons
4 January 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Set early in World War I, Lieutenant Paul Almasy tries to escape to the Austrian army lines from Russian occupied Austria, but ends up in a small hotel, saved by chambermaid Anna Sedlak (Pola Negri). A Russian general makes the hotel his headquarters and chases Anna, who has fallen for the Paul. They must stop a dangerous spy and save the Austrian army and Paul's life.

Starts slowly and has a lot of filler, especially stock footage of WW I action. They could also have left off the Hollywood ending, which is obvious once it starts. The action in the middle is somewhat better done, especially the scenes with Anna and the General.

Thought to be the only Hollywood work by Mauritz Stiller to have survived.

The same play was also filmed in 1936 as I Loved a Soldier, in 1939 and in 1943 as Five Graves to Cairo.
