The Eagle is loosely based on the posthumously published 1841 novel Dubrovsky by Alexander Pushkin. A lieutenant in the Russian army attracts the attention of Tsarina Catharina II. After rejecting her advances and fleeing, she issues a warrant for his arrest, dead or alive. When he hears his father was persecuted and murdered, he dons a black mask to become The Black Eagle and exact his revenge.
