Did You Know?


Henry Koster wrote the screenplay in Paris in 1933. He was unable to write under his own name because of the existing rules of the French writer's union, so he wrote with a nom de plume. He only received credit for this and other films written in 1933 in Paris after World War II. See more »

A choice between a dashing officer and a Rasputin-like greybeard!
20 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

It takes place in Moscow (check the title) during WW1 (1916,to be precise)!But it's a chocolate box city and who could believe the Russian people were really waging war?Who could believe they were on the eve of revolution? Forget history ,and you have a romantic story which could happen anywhere .Natacha (Annabella)'s fiancé is not what we call a handsome man (Harry Baur) but he soaked up all her family's debts.She 's a nurse in a military hospital and she falls in love with an officer (Pierre Richard- Wilm).But alas,he is mistaken for a spy and only his rival can save him during his trial.

Annabella is gorgeous but rather bland and Harry Baur ,left to his own devices,overacts ,probably inspired by Rasputin and his orgies.Richard-Wilm is not very good either.But the story ,adapted from one of Pierre Benoit's ("l'Atlantide" ) extravaganzas ,is fairly entertaining.
