Product Details

Alexander Nevsky Sergei Eisenstein 1938 Sergei Eisenstein drew on history, Russian folk narratives, and the techniques of Walt Disney to create this broadly painted epic of Russian resilience, the story of Teutonic knights vanquished by Prince Alexander Nevsky’s tactical brilliance. Ivan the Terrible, Part I Sergei Eisenstein 1944 Visually stunning and powerfully acted, Ivan the Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into terror of this veritable dictator. Ivan the Terrible, Part II Sergei Eisenstein 1958 Visually stunning and powerfully acted, Ivan the Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into terror of this veritable dictator. Stalin detested the portrait in the second film—with its summary executions and secret police—and promptly banned it.
