Storyline

A young officer in the army of Empress Catherine of Russia is on his way to his new duty station at a remote outpost. During a blinding snowstorm he comes upon a stranger who was caught in the storm and is near death from freezing. He rescues the man and eventually brings him back to health. When the man is well enough to travel, the two part company and the man vows to repay the officer for saving his life. Soon after he arrives at his new post, a revolt by the local Cossacks breaks out and the fort is besieged by the rebels. The young officer is astonished to find out that the leader of the rebellious Cossacks is none other than the stranger whose life he had saved during the storm. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Trivia

The African-American playwright Louis Peterson did receive screenplay credit on the English-language version of this film shown in the UK, though possibly not elsewhere. Michael Wilson's contribution, however, was made anonymously - it would be another six years before Wilson finally got off the blacklist. Alberto Lattuada fell ill briefly whilst directing the film, and was replaced for roughly two weeks by, surprisingly, Michelangelo Antonioni, who had not at that time achieved the international renown which he would gain soon afterwards. (The British release of this film came shortly after the London opening of "Le Amiche", the first Antonioni film to be shown - albeit after a four-year delay - in the UK). See more »

If you like historical dramas, this is worth a look
26 March 2005 | by Charles_HobbsSee all my reviews

Check out the cast. Van Heflin is always worth watching. If you like historical drams, you will probably like this movie. I certainly did. Also, Lindfors, whom I've always liked, Homolka, etc. Give it a try. While it has been many years since I have seen this movie, I remember it well enough to want to buy a copy. I am a sucker for epics and will sit through some that others might not want to, but I do think this one is good enough to recommend. As I remember, the Catherine is quite good and lovely. And I have been a fan of Viveca Lindfors since the fifties. It was great to see her again in Stargate. Do you remember The Story of Ruth? Tempest is kludgy perhaps in places, but good.
