Audience Reviews for Knight Without Armour

robert donat is in deep cover with russian revolutionaries and winds up in siberia. after two years he's released and made assistant to a commissar in the new soviet government. one of his first assignments is to accompany the beautiful countess alexandra to petrograd to stand trial. instead he tries to help her escape. full of romance and espionage; a terrific adventure story! a bit anti-communist but all in the service of making la dietrich look like a goddess ;)

A Riches to Rags Story for a Russian Countess During the Russian Revolution.Filmed on a Grand Scale, Beautifully Stunning Cinematography.Her Palace & Wardrobe were so Elegant, till she had to flee.They striped her of everything, her only crime being a Widow & a Countess., but being a Lovely Person, even her former Servants didn't give her over to be put before the firing squad..This Film shows the Hardship that the Russian People endured during the Revolution.A very strong story & worthwhile Film.
