At the behest of his father, fun-loving Eddie Ramson ( David Butler ) joins an expedition to Russia under the command of Captain Carleton ( Jack Cosgrove ). He is rarely sober but does find time to win the heart of peasant schoolmarm Sophie Semenoff ( Helen Ferguson ). Sophie is under considerable pressure from the Bolsheviki to marry, and there are merry chases which result in Eddie's taking Sophie for his wife. Back in the U. S. A., Eddie and Sophie meet his mother's disapproval, and Sophie is again pursued and kidnapped by American agents of Russian anarchists. Mrs. Ramson ( Lillian Lawrence ) gets the upper hand over the abductors, Sophie reveals that they really sought her family jewels, and the family is happily reconciled, knowing Sophie is a princess.
This 1921 silent comedy/drama was based on the short story "Sophie Semenoff" by Wallace Irwin and produced by David Butler Productions, starring Helen Ferguson. Sadly, Making the Grade may now be a lost silent film.
