Trivia

Production was stopped by Soviet officials in 1937. Sergei M. Eisenstein had spent two years filming and had up to 3 different completed versions. The shot material in movie form was taken to a film storage vault, which was destroyed during a German bombing raid in the war. The film was confirmed to be destroyed at this time, however the government is thought to have destroyed it earlier on. Eisenstein, however saved two frames from the beginning and end of all of his shots and in the mid 1960s these were put together according to script, story board, and notes on the film to a 31-minute reconstruction of film stills.

May have been Eisenstein's best film
27 April 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

You can find the reconstruction of this film on the Criterion released Alexander Nevsky DVD. The photography is absolutely amazing, and, although the story is a bit confusing in the reconstruction, the mood is preserved fiercely by the photography and the added music (by Prokofiev, Eisenstein's later collaborator). Around 25 minutes long, even this reconstruction proves to be a masterpiece. Too bad we don't have a whole.
