Abstract

The story is set in Russia at the time of the Bolshevik Revolution. Tasia, a beautiful lower class dancer from Russia, falls for the hier to the throne, Grand Duke Eugene. At the outbreak of the Russian Revolution, the Duke falls in captivity and this allows Tasia to be near him. Although a silent movie, it was released with synchronized music, sound effects, and with English intertitles. The "Red Dance" is described in an intertitle as the name for a bloody and irresponsible movement to grab power by revolutionaries not equipped to wield power. [IMDb]
