Hollywood Silent Film - The Last Command

Go back in time with the First Oscars Silent Film Series! This month, virtuoso organist Jonas Nordwall lends his talents to the The Last Command (1928). Silent film star Emil Jannings won the very first Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance of Grand Duke Sergius Alexander.

In The Last Command, the Grand Duke, the Czar’s cousin and commander of all his armies, falls in love with a revolutionary. Their genuine love for each other cuts a tragic path through Russia as neither has the strength to abandon their ranks. Soon the couple find themselves trapped by the roles they play falling further and further from revolution, reality and revenge. The film ends with an elegant plot twist.
