Storyline

When Count Valdai died, he left his only daughter, Rosalind, in the care of his friend Olga, Duke of Tula. When Rosalind had grown from a beautiful child to a more beautiful young woman, she left the Duke's great estate on the Russian steppes and went with him to Moscow, where on account of her beauty and wealth, she attracted a great deal of attention from the young noblemen of the Court of Peter the Great. Most prominent among these was the young Count, Conrad Damonoff, for whom Rosalind cared not at all. Her affections were entirely centered on another man, Ruric Nevel, "The Gunmaker of Moscow."

Abounds in the usual intrigue
22 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This presentation of the story of Peter the Great abounds in the usual intrigue featured in the writings of Sylvanus Cobb, Jr. Anyone familiar with the devices of this master of Russian melodrama will recognize the type of incidents pictured here. The characterizations, particularly those of Ruric and Peter the Great, by Benj. F. Wilson and Charles Ogle, were satisfactory. The costuming is good and helps convey a proper atmosphere. The story carries the interest along very nicely and works up to the surprise scene at the last quite ingeniously. Bigelow Cooper and Edna Hamel also appear. - The Moving Picture World, December 13, 1913
