[For 9 minute surviving fragment] Lucian, a soldier in Paris, is to ship out for Algiers at 9 that evening. He stops by for a last meal with his love, Marianne. He may be worried that when he leaves she will find another soldier to love. They argue then embrace and, when the clock strikes midnight, he is still in her arms. Is desertion in the cards? Can the relationship survive the military demands and a soldier's obligations? Written by
FYI, the duration of the one-glorious-reel of this film is *exactly* nine minutes. It is frequently aired during the 15 minutes before a full-length Greta_Garbo film on TCM. At the start, it states that it is "Presented by Turner Entertainment Co.", with this sentence: "This is the only section of this film known to exist". The film has Russian text written in-frame with English subtitles. Only three of the cast appear in the 9 minutes: Greta Garbo, Lars Hanson, Polly Moran. Miss Garbo was about 23 years young in this film; her lusciousness and tender affection are stunning!
