Seen this little gem on TCM a couple weeks ago, wow,, first off this is quite long run time over 4 hours without commercial. Natalya Glan wow she is pure beauty,, and sexy as well, this takes place during the Bolshevik Revolution,, a man and his cohorts are trying to wipe Russia off the face of the earth with the ampules that are filled with some kind of poison, they are attached to antennas spread across the city and once the signal is given,, instant annihilation,, but in their way are three intrepid, clumsy, and yet hilarious reporters, it seems weird how this story seems to just fall into their lap, dumb luck i guess,, time is of the essence and they really don't have time to tell Interpol, or say the police, so these brave reporters must do it all by themselves,, this is a very good silent picture, as i have seen more than a few, this is the first foreign one however that i have seen, and i think that TCM is on the right path here, i would like them to make a whole entire day once a month of nothing but silent films.. excellent film with great characters,, and humor also.
