Cast & Crew
Tamara Loraine, a beautiful young Englishwoman, is attracted to Russian Prince Gritzko, who is famed for his many romantic affairs, when she meets him in Egypt and again in Russia. Gritzko is attentive, but Tamara remains distant so as not to be numbered among his conquests. When Gritzko wins a duel and the right to accompany Tamara to a ball, she decides to return to England. On their way to the ship during a snowstorm, Gritzko maneuvers Tamara to his lodge for shelter, and she resists his advances until she collapses from exhaustion. Gritzko then leaves her alone, but in the morning Tamara finds her waist opened (Gritzko wanted to know if her heart was beating) and believes that honor dictates that she marry him. After the ceremony, the prince offers to go away until sent for, but Tamara realizes their mutual, sincere love and bids him stay.
