This was a film of my childhood. I saw it 50 years ago and still some scenes are vivid in my memory. Like when Suche threw his revolver on the scale when asked how much meat he wanted to buy or when Lenin answered him that they should make "some worker" a president of the people's republic (what a laugh, I know now). The country was, of course, Mongolia, and this film was a fine piece of Russian war-time propaganda. I saw it only once but I also had a paperback with the full dialogue which I read again and again. I believe that the makers of the American film on Genghis Khan must have seen the film because at least the closing scenes have a lot in common.
