Austrian Captain Karl von Raden attends the opera one evening, and meets Tania. After the performance, he takes her home, and the two of them spend the next day on a romantic outing. That evening, Karl must deliver some important plans to Berlin. Just before boarding his train, he learns that Tania is really a Russian spy. She comes to see him aboard the train, and admits that she set things up on purpose so as to meet him, but she also insists that she truly has fallen in love with him.

Film Review

This is a blueprint for the screenplay to Garbo’s later talkie, MATA HARI. Here she plays a spy who seduces officer Nagel. She manages to fall in love with him but he rejects her, once he knows she is a spy. She goes ahead with her plans to steal documents from him. He is stripped of his officer’s rank. Later, she kills her superior in order to save his life and flee with him.Both Garbo and Nagel are effective, but in no way extraordinary. The film is well made without being memorable overall.

It is coming on again on TCM on September 15th. Camille was supposed to be coming on the 5th of September, but I guess not. Dammit. And to think that Camille is one of my favorite movies. At least I’ll get to see The Mysterious Lady. I was also going to say that I thought that Conrad Nagle was the best…
