Based on a Pushkin novel, The Eagle is a thrilling romantic adventure featuring legendary silent star Rudolph Valentino as a Russian Cossack who spurns the attentions of the formidable Catherine the Great (Louise Dresser). When his lands are stolen from him, Valentino transforms into a Robin-Hood-like masked avenger. Despite his thirst for revenge, he falls in love with the daughter of the man who killed his father (played by Vilma Banky). She goes the "Lois Lane" route of adoring the masked-avenger but disdaining the unmasked Rudy, little guessing that the two are one and the same. (USA, 1925, 73 mins | Dir. Clarence Brown)
