Our March DVD
On October 25th, 1917 the Russian Revolution began, and the communist doctrine that it spawned was to have a profound effect on the entire world. This famous propaganda film, released in 1968, marks the 50th anniversary of the revolt. It skillfully distills the most important events of the period into unforgettable scenes of blood and glory. We hear the ringing speeches of Lenin and see the massacre of peasant marchers in city streets, as well as the final storming of government buildings. The film also highlights other stirring events during that period, culminating in World War II and the great victory that followed. Incorporated into a wide-screen CinemaScope triptych technique are dramatic selections from historic footage, clips from classic Soviet feature films and rare photographs. A soaring musical score enhances the three-panel montage impact of this outstanding presentation.
