Excellent Barrymore
24 June 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

In Czarist Russia, a peasant officer (John Barrymore), resented by the aristocrats, falls in love with a princess.

The version on Netflix streaming goes a bit fast, as in it is set to the wrong frames-per-minute. This works great for silent comedies (Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd) but makes this seem a bit more silly than it ought to.

Seeing as this film was made in 1928, there was time enough to look back at the revolution. Of course, that is not the intent, with this being a love story, but it is interesting to have a soldier who disapproves of the czar. We know (and the makers of this film knew) that was came after was not necessarily better. Perhaps people were still blinded at this point (we did not turn against Russia until after 1945).
