  • "An ironic story of a Czarist general reduced to working as an extra in Hollywood after his flight from the Revolution. Sternberg referred to his concern with extracting 'the essence of the Hollywood dream factory and to flash the essentials of a revolution without being realistic to either'. This provides evocative settings for the complex relationships between two men and a woman. The motivations of the characters played by Evelyn Brent and William Powell remain richly ambiguous. Jannings' expressionistic acting persuasively portrays the descent from grandeur to humiliation. The story had its origins in a real-life incident."@en
