Storyline

A young officer in the army of Empress Catherine of Russia is on his way to his new duty station at a remote outpost. During a blinding snowstorm he comes upon a stranger who was caught in the storm and is near death from freezing. He rescues the man and eventually brings him back to health. When the man is well enough to travel, the two part company and the man vows to repay the officer for saving his life. Soon after he arrives at his new post, a revolt by the local Cossacks breaks out and the fort is besieged by the rebels. The young officer is astonished to find out that the leader of the rebellious Cossacks is none other than the stranger whose life he had saved during the storm. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

If you like historical dramas, this is worth a look
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Check out the cast. Van Heflin is always worth watching. If you like historical drams, you will probably like this movie. I certainly did. Also, Lindfors, whom I've always liked, Homolka, etc. Give it a try. While it has been many years since I have seen this movie, I remember it well enough to want to buy a copy. I am a sucker for epics and will sit through some that others might not want to, but I do think this one is good enough to recommend. As I remember, the Catherine is quite good and lovely. And I have been a fan of Viveca Lindfors since the fifties. It was great to see her again in Stargate. Do you remember The Story of Ruth? Tempest is kludgy perhaps in places, but good.
