Description: Lev Kuleshov scored one of Soviet cinema’s first successes with this story about a straightlaced American who comes to Soviet Russia and is disabused of his prejudices about the socialist state. Kuleshov, inventor of many of the action techniques that would become the hallmark of early Soviet cinema, uses all the tricks in his wizard’s bag on this chase through Moscow.
