Marlene Dietrich lights up the screen as the Empress Catherine in this historical drama directed by Josef Von Sterberg. Young Princess Catherine's dreams are shattered when she's forced into an arranged marriage with Peter, the homely and idiotic Grand Duke of Russia. Though there is pressure to bear a male heir to the throne, Peter prefers the company of his mistress. Imprisoned in loveless wedlock, his young bride seeks solace in the arms of other men, including a handsome young officer of the guard. Months later, when a son is born, Russia rejoices, while Peter conspires to murder his adulterous wife. But the officer of the guard and Catherine's loyal troops stand by their beloved monarch to save imperial Russia from the hands of this madman.
