This is perhaps the most sought after of all "LOST" films. There are a few pieces in the UCLA archives but no negative or complete reels are known to exist. It received extraordinary reviews, was nominated for five Oscars: Best Film, Best Actor - Lewis Stone, Best Director - Ernst Lubitsch, Best Art Direction and Best Screenplay. Oddly it won for Screenplay - a silent film in the first year of the talkies. Talkie sequences were added after the film's opening. Said to contain one of Emil Jannings' best performances as Mad Czar Paul I. One you'll probably never see but wish you had.
