The film is a beautiful collaboration between two giants of silent cinema: director Ernst Lubitsch and actress Pola Negri. The film also features a cameo appearance by Clark Gable. This sensual drama, filled with humor, tells the story of Emperess Catherina the Great, her loneliness and her deep longings. Since almost 100 years, it is finally possible again to see this film in its entirety in a brand new restoration. An absolute must-see for every (silent) film lover.
