It was still possible in the early months of 1915 for an American film company to turn out a piece of pro-German propaganda like The Last Volunteer. Eleanor Woodruff stars as Katrina, a courageous mittel-European innkeeper's daughter who doubles as an anarchist. Despite her anti-royalist sentiments, Katrina falls in love with Teutonic prince Paul Panzer. When war breaks out, she firmly casts her lot with the Prince, volunteering to raise signal flags which will alert the army whenever the monarch is in danger. So devoted is she to her beloved prince, that Katrina ends up sacrificing her own life to save his.
