Russia, 1910. Yegor, a dashing (as well as singing) bandit leader meets Princess Vera at a mountain inn. They end up falling in love, but the relationship is shattered when Yegor kills Vera's brother, Prince Serge, for raping his sister, Nadja, and driving her to suicide. Yegor kidnaps Vera, forcing her to live a life of lowly servitude among the bandits. Vera manages to outwit Yegor, who's captured by soldiers and flogged. Vera begs Yegor's forgiveness. Although still in love with each other, they realize they cannot be together, at least for the time being. Written by

This title was originally one of over 700 features included in the MGM feature film package which was initially sold to local television stations in 1956; however, there is no record of the film ever actually having been shown, and later editions of the TV Key Book list it as "Withdrawn by MGM-TV; Bad Negative"; the same situation applies to Caught Short (1930).

This is perhaps not a review, but a comment that portions of the movie have been posted on you-tube. If I remember correctly, the scenes/clips together added up to about 20 or so minutes. This means that about 1/5th of The Rogue Song is known to survive today. The clips were actually quite beautiful, although they involve mostly Laurence Tibbett and not Laurel and Hardy. One can also see the original trailer, a ballet sequence of about 5 minutes and a 3 minute clip of Laurel and Hardy rushing into a cave. Hopefully the entire film will turn up someday soon.The 10 rating is for the joy that I think any film lover will have while seeing these tantalizing scenes from an otherwise lost film.
