~The Red Dance~
1928
~R.W.-23-66: Ivan Linow & Dolores Del Rio~
~Plot Synopsis~
Based upon The Red Dancer of Moscow by Henry Leyford Gates, The Red Dance is a silent film (released with
a synchronized score, to take advantage of the commercial allure that "sound" added to films in 1928) that
paints a picture of Russia before, during and after the Soviet Revolution. Tasia (Dolores Del Rio) is a peasant
girl who becomes romantically involved with Grand Duke Eugen (Charles Farrell ), a Russian aristocrat who is
supposed to marry Princess Varvara ($Dorothy Revier). True love eventually wins out, although things are
invariably complicated by the changes wrought by the Revolution -- which include Tasia's new career as a
dancer with the Moscow Theatre and Eugen's adjustments to life outside the aristocracy.
