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

Wonderful historical epic
22 September 2000 | by (N. Vancouver. B.C., Canada) – See all my reviews

Thrilling melodrama of political intrigue. individual courage and idealism, as well as a romantic love story. Really, upon a not yet cynical mentality, it leaves an unforgettable impression. Van Heflin is wonderful as Peter the Pretender to the Russian throne; Viveca Lindfors is to die for as Catherine the Great, and there are numerous other colourful performances too.
