The Eagle Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Based on a [[Performer~P218283~Pushkin~alexanderpushkin]] novel, [[Feature~V161359~The Eagle~aguila]] stars [[Performer~P72650~Rudolph Valentino~rudolphvalentino]] as a Russian cossack who is the special favorite of the formidable Catherine the Great ([[Performer~P20129~Louise Dresser~louisedresser]]). He spurns her attentions, preferring not to be a kept consort. When his lands are stolen from him, [[Performer~P72650~Valentino~rudolphvalentino]] transforms into a Robin-Hood-like masked avenger. [[Performer~P3739~Vilma Banky~vilmabanky]] plays the daughter of the man who killed [[Performer~P72650~Valentino~rudolphvalentino]]'s own father. Despite his thirst for revenge, our hero falls in love with Vilma, who goes the "Lois Lane" route of adoring the masked-avenger [[Performer~P72650~Valentino~rudolphvalentino]] but disdaining the unmasked Rudy, little guessing that the two are one in the same. Watch quickly for [[Performer~P223908~Gary Cooper~garycooper]] as one of [[Performer~P72650~Valentino~rudolphvalentino]]'s masked minions. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
