Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A man without desire? That was but one of the novelties of the silent British romantic fantasy. Matinee idol Ivor Novello, who also produced the picture, stars as an 18th-century Venetian count. When his true love (Nina Vanna) dies, the count loses all interest in living. Snapping out of his grief, he develops a method to place himself in a state of suspended animation. Awakening in 1923, the count is reunited with his love -- or at least with one of her descendants.
