Sequel, not prequel

This is actually a sequel, not a prequel to the older movie, because Strogoff is now a colonel. In the old movie he was a captain and only at the final he was promoted colonel.

Indeed, in the old movie Strogoff was put to a blinding torture by the enemies, however he managed to avoid the blinding itself (watch that movie to see how). Therefore, the fact he is not blind now, does not make this movie a prequel.

As for the story, the old movie does not follow the Jules Verne book so closely. I found the best match with the book in the 1937 movie, The Soldier and the Lady. Pity it's a B/W one.
