Just a few corrections...
20 September 2009 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

First, the film was completed in 1941, just a few days before the USSR entered the WWII.Its first official screening was scheduled and astonishingly carried out on July 6th 1941. Second, the role of Tomash Kruticky was played by VALENTIN Scheglov, a relatively unknown actor, who died in 1948 and, naturally, has no connection with VICTOR Scheglov mentioned by IMDb All the above information is quite available and is contained in a wonderful book by Alexey Scheglov (Valentin Scheglov's son)"Ranevskaya" on the life and career of the brilliant Russian actress and on the time she lived and worked in. Thanks for reading my commentary. P.S. The film itself deserves much credit ,but is now totally and undeservedly forgotten.Oh Tempora,oh Mores!
