| Disappointingly Uninvolving
The Boxer Rebellion of 1901 provides a dramatic backdrop for this lavish vehicle for Alla Nazimova. Ms Nazimova is as ever a handsome and imposing presence, showcased against the backdrop of a handsome and imposing but sadly uninvolving production; much of it unfortunately directed as on a proscenium by Albert Capellani, who should have told his leading lady to go easy on the "silent movie" gestures with her hands had he wielded sufficient clout on the set.
