This 1911 Russian silent movie is the first film ever based on Leo Tolstoy's novel "Anna Karenina". The project was initially planned by Aleksandr Khanzhonkov, albeit he left the production company Pathe-Russia, and the film was eventually made by French crew with stage actors from Moscow theaters. The company Pathe-Russia had several movie-theaters and a film studio in Moscow before the Russian revolution of 1917.
