starring William Boyd and Elinor Fair
June, 1926

Cecil De Mille has woven into his newest picture much that is typically artificial. As usual, he fails to reach your heart and the efforts at humor fall flat. Yet the strength of the theme behind its thin story and the beautiful composition and photography lift it above the ranks.

It is the story of a Prince, Victor Varconi; a Princess, Elinor Fair, and a Volga Boatman, William Boyd.
