Hearts in Exile

1
RUSSIA
in the days
of the Czars


The land of oppression
    and tyranny.

2
Anna Ivanovna, who
has consecrated
her life to work
among Russia's 
persecuted poor.

___Clara Kimball Young

3
Paul Pavloff
a young doctor
whose interest
in the charity
headquarters
is more than
professional.
  ___Vernon Steele

4
Mikhail,
whose home is
a meeting place
for Nihilists.
___ Paul McAllister

5
"Without the proper
 medicine my wife
 will die!"

6
Raskovitz
a secret agent
of the police.

7
        Serge Kartoff

a wealthy and
influential merchant,
        also 
"interested in charity."

  ___Claude Fleming

8
    NICOLAI,
Chief of Police.
___Montague Love

9
"My father's been arrested.
 The young doctor was
 there--he's arrested too."

10
"Please come with me
 and intercede for him."

11
"Pavloff is not a Nihilist
 --I'll vouch for him."

12
Nicolai never forgot
   a pretty face.

13
At the home of
Anna Ivanovna

14
"We both love her. Let
 chance decide which shall
 propose first."

15
"Oh, Paul, why are you poor?
 I dare not love you. I must
 have money for my work."

16
"My father gave his life
 for his people, and I have
 dedicated mine to his work."

17
"Marry me and all I
 have is yours--to use
 as you will."

18
Anna's sacrifice
for Russia's poor.

19
When the guests 
have departed --

20
"You are so good to
 me! I know I shall
 learn to love you."

21
After the
honeymoon

22
"I have been appointed in-
 structor at the University
 of Moscow and must go
 there at once."

23
Nicolai tightens
    his grip.

24
"Telegraph Moscow to
 arrest Paul Pavloff as
 a Nihilist."

25
"Implicate Serge Kartoff as
 your confederate. Refusal
 means death!"

26
"I would have spared your
 husband if I could, but I must
 obey the higher command."

27
Paul sentenced to
 the Provinces.

28
Nicolai's path is now
        clear.

29
Serge sentenced 
  to Siberia.

30
At the exile
forwarding prison.

31
"Serge! You here!
 Where is Anna?
 Is she safe?"

32
"Where is my husband?
 I must go to him."

33
"Why should you go?
 Stay here with me. I am
 mad with love for you."

34
The daring act
 of a jealous
    woman

35
"Serge, at the roll call, take
 my name. You can escape
 from the Provinces and re-
 turn to Anna. You could
 never escape from Siberia!"

36
"For her sake, then --"

37
"If I tell you where your
 husband is, will you go
 to him at once?"

38
"He is sentenced to fifteen
 years at Kara, Siberia."

39
The morning
 roll call.

40
"Serge Kartoff! --"

41
"Kara, Siberia, fifteen years!"

42
"Paul Pavloff!"

43
"The Provinces--five years!"

44
Through Paul's sacrifice,
husband and wife pass
each other unknowingly
     on the road.

45
After weeks
of hardship,
Anna reaches
the convict 
   camp.

46
"You shall share your
 husband's cottage!"

47
"Serge! Serge!"

48
"But how can you go?
 Discovery would mean
 instant death to Serge!"

49
"Oh, Anna, can't you trust
 me? You know how sacred
 you are to me. You must 
 pretend to be my wife for
 a time -- that's all!"

50
Happy in their
companionship
despite their
false position.

51
HEARTS
  IN
 EXILE.

52
For attempting to 
escape, Mikhail
has been sent 
   to Kara.

53
"Serge is dead! These people
 believe us to be husband and wife.
 Surely Heaven will sanctify
 our solemn vows though the
 priest be absent."

54
HEARTS
UNITED

55
The Governor
receives an
unexpected
visit from a
prison inspector.

56
"I bring a pardon for a man
 named Serge Kartoff!"

57
"Before Heaven, Mikhail
 told us you were dead!"

58
"Serge! You must
 believe me!"

59
"Hush! It is a
 forged pardon."
