Fascinating but incomplete
3 December 2004 | by pppattySee all my reviews

I was bemused reading the previous comment. I recently saw a 2003 restoration of this film which ran 90 minutes, not the 80 minutes listed in the combined details. However apparently the sixth reel is lost and the action is delineated by intertitles on a black screen -- this includes the heroine's rescue from the mountain (not by a plane -- that only appears at the very end of the film). I wonder how the previous reviewer could have seen the complete film or at least not mentioned that an important part of it is missing. Despite the obvious propaganda, the acting, particularly by Yelena Kuzmina, is first-rate.
