A Prince of Bharata

Robert Dinesen, 1917, 64 min
At a European seaside resort, Elly von Langen, the beautiful daughter of an officer, meets an elegant Indian maharajah and falls in love with him. She elopes with the maharajah to India. Much to her chagrin, she finds herself installed in his harem there, and even though she is accorded the status of being his favourite wife, she does not have her freedom. One day, Elly eyes an opportunity to escape her captivity. But will the Maharajah ever let her go? Or perhaps it is not the walls of the palace that are holding Elly back?
