Synopsis

"The Grand Duke Eugen is considered a menace by the reactionary court group which is undermining the morale of the Czar's army. Tasia, a peasant girl, is persuaded to shoot him on the eve of his marriage to Princess Varvara. She misses and is glad because she loves him. Comes the Revolution, making her the Red Dancer of Moscow, while Ivan, her peasant admirer, rises to be a general. Eugen is again in danger but is saved from firing squad and restored to Tasia by the magnanimous Ivan." ( National Board of Review Magazine , vol.3, no. 7, Jul 1928, p11.)
