Plot Summary

Russia, 1910. Yegor, a dashing (as well as singing) bandit leader meets Princess Vera at a mountain inn. They end up falling in love, but the relationship is shattered when Yegor kills Vera's brother, Prince Serge, for raping his sister, Nadja, and driving her to suicide. Yegor kidnaps Vera, forcing her to live a life of lowly servitude among the bandits. Vera manages to outwit Yegor, who's captured by soldiers and flogged. Vera begs Yegor's forgiveness. Although still in love with each other, they realize they cannot be together, at least for the time being. Written by Eugene Kim

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Although no print of this film is known to exist, the complete 90-minute soundtrack does. MGM transferred early sound discs to tape and approximately half of this material was released on LP in the early 1980s - on an obscure label. This included parts of the dialogue but was mainly the musical numbers. This is the only Laurel and Hardy "feature" film no longer available. Please check your attic. See more »
