Superior Russian silent.
10 March 2004 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

It's a pity that this rousing adventure piece - with Euro villains - has disappeared from repertory. It really is the grandfather of all train adventure movies and with the (English?) officer moving along the carriage roofs between his privileged lot, the uninvolved Asian bourgeoisie and the coolies in working class struggle, as the proto Peking Express speeds along. The then politically correct take on the colonial powers is a match for Pudovkin's STORM OVER ASIA and he did a British tour saying how sorry he was about that one.

Particularly with the Meisel score, this is a whole lot more approachable than the so called classics.
