Aleksandr Stolper: Story of a Real Man (1948)


Starring Pavel Kadochnikov, Nikolai Okhlopkov, Vasili Merkuriev.
Description: Author Boris Polevoi fought through the war as a major in General Konev’s staff. He was trained as a journalist and this shows in most of his works. Story of a Real Man (novel, 1946; radio play and movie, 1947), based on a real event, is a classic of socialist realism, vividly written, and charged with suspense. The hero’s eventual triumphal recovery after losing his leg provided youth with an example of undefeatable determination.
