Movie Info

Having side-stepped the advances of Catherine the Great herself, a wronged Russian Cossack becomes a masked avenger of the people until meeting ultimate justice at the hand of his adoring Catherine. This regally mounted Rudolph Valentino costume drama is from a novel by Aleksandr Pushkin. Gary Cooper has a brief bit.

[Valentino demonstrates] his star power as forcefully as in any of his other efforts, even when the film seems painfully derivative.

Audience Reviews for The Eagle

OK movie, the guy really did jump on to some moving horses, because actors weren't all poofs back then. Or something. I'm not sure.

An average romantic adventure movie, but if you're a fan of Valentino, check it out.

Superb classic silent film, what a great cast. Rudolph Valentino is at his best. Good story with a great pace. The sets are excellent and the cinematography is good.
