The Eagle, a 1925 silent film based on a short story by Alexander Pushkin, features early movie star Rudolph Valentino in one of his most highly regarded roles. Lieutenant Vladimir Dubrovsky (Rudolph Valentino) is a Cossack in the Russian army during the rule of Catherine the Great. As the film opens, he rescues lovely Mascha (Vilma Banky) and her aunt from a runaway coach, catching the attention of the Czarina (Louise Dresser). The Czarina promises to promote Vladimir to General, but he is disgusted to learn that the favor is simply a pretext for the Czarina's true intention -- to seduce the handsome Vladimir. Vladimir earns the wrath of the Czarina when he rejects her advances, and his troubles continue when he discovers that Mascha's father has seized the family lands. Vladimir dons a mask and becomes the "Black Eagle," seeking revenge against his enemies. However, his love for Mascha may interfere with his plot against her father.
