Synopsis

Marian Duncan, an American dancer, climaxes her theatrical success in Russia by becoming the fiancée of Vladimir Orloff, a young army officer, unaware that the Grand Duke Alexandrovich is also in love with her. Marian refuses the nobleman's gifts and advances; and enraged over his rival, the grand duke has the lieutenant arrested. Marian flees to another city, but Orloff escapes and follows her. The citizens and soldiers believe Marian and Orloff to be a grand duchess and her adjutant, and the pair accept the people's homage. The grand duke arrives, and instead of denouncing her imposture, he insists on accompanying her to her suite, where Orloff is hiding. Then the real grand duchess arrives, and Alexandrovich, afraid of his jealous spouse, is forced to forgive Orloff and to sanction his marriage to the American dancer.
