~LeRoy Mason & Dolores Del Rio~
~Plot Synopsis~
Mexican-born Dolores Del Rio is convincingly cast as a fiery Hungarian lass in Revenge. Yet another
variation on The Taming of the Shrew, the film concentrates on the tempestuous relationship
between whip-wielding Rascha (Del Rio), the daughter of a bear tamer, and virile Hussar officer
Jorga (Leroy Mason). Kidnapping Rascha, Jorga demands that she become his wife -- and a docile,
obedient one at that. The more Rascha protests against this set-up (and she puts up quite a fight!),
the more Jorga falls in love with her. By film's end, Rascha is as sweet and subservient as any of her
daddy's trained bears, but one still wonders how long this will last. A silent film, Revenge was
released with a synchronized musical score.

Plot Synopsis by Hal Erickson, AllMovie.com

Rascha, the wild daughter of Costa, the Gypsy bear tamer, swears revenge on Jorga, her father's
enemy, when he cuts off her braids (a sign of disgrace among the Gypsies). Jorga later repents of his
cruel act and cuts off the braids of all the other Gypsy women, returning Rascha's braids to her while
she is sleeping. Rascha awakens and beats Jorga with a whip, exciting him to stifle her cries with his
hot, passionate lips. Jorga later kidnaps Rascha and takes her to a mountain cave, where he sets out
to tame her. Rascha comes to love Jorga and later helps him to elude the vengeance of her irate
