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!
