Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Nancy Carroll star as Russian aristocrats who flee to Constantinople and pose as commoners to escape the Bolshevik Revolution. But the Baron Nikita Krasnoff (Fairbanks--The Prisoner of Zenda) cannot adjust to his new life of poverty and obscurity and soon begins an affair with a devious woman and a life of crime as a con artist. Nearly losing everything, and being exposed as frauds, the married couple eventually must again rely on each other escape with their very lives in this towering romantic epic.
