The three-reel Mystery of Silistria was a typically ornate production from the Italian studios of Pasquale Pictures. Evidently inspired by The Prisoner of Zenda, the story concerns a handsome prince and his treacherous lookalike. The story moves swiftly to a pulse-pounding finish, with the police commandeering a speeding car to overtake a gang of foreign spies. It should come as no surprise that the good guys win, the prince is restored to his throne, and his sweetheart, Olga, becomes his bride. And, oh yes, the plot line also involves a packet of "secret papers," of the kind so beloved by writers of such escapist fare.
