michael strogoff 1937
17 July 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I saw this wonderful film when I was 15 in 1940, a local cinema in Barcelona and still love very much as well as the nostalgia that surrounds those days of black and white film that we like so much. talking about the film in its technical, special effects and perfect interpretation; all area perfect. "I don't know why they are doing chariot races - is nothing these races they made already in the Roman Empire" - commentary between the two journalists in the carriage - the interpretation of Anton Walbrook is memorable, as well as the rest of actors and actresses. scenarios are beautiful even in black and white, great staging of the thousands of extras and the Russian cavalry and tartar. Anton Walbrook in the role of Michael Strogoff is great, as well as Akim Tamiroff in the role of Ogareff, Fay Bainter is exquisite and sweet as the hero's mother, Elizabeth Allan as the girlfriend of Michel Strogoff is so beautiful and sweet as the heroines of those times, finally a great movie that I never tire of seeing and seeing.
