Communist propaganda fun,in a innocent way.
17 November 2016 | by (Mongomery,Alabama) – See all my reviews

Unlike the put on that the third Reich did when Americans went to the 1936 Olympics.This was Genuine.When Producer Harold Jay Dennis had talked to our government to make a Cinerama about Russia to cool things down between the countries,possibly the Communist Government agree for a legitimate reason.Not only their need to see their Kinopanarama films be show in the United state for international distribution only,but, to get more product to Russia own Kino theaters.In return that Cinerama would allow their films to be premiere in Russia,since it was compatible to Cinerama, for more product.So that The comrades movie going audience could see movies like ," How the West Was One ,This is Cinerama and others.My favorite in the Blu- ray is the interview of the Dennis Children.The sons.It seemed that when they were kids or teenagers.It was the two sons the edited and fixed the movie.One got fed up looking at the same scenes over and over again.They had to takes scenes out of copies of the Kino featured that were sent to them .They used a Small office space for the editing with 7 small speakers and a sheet.Yes the two kids actually did most of the work to a certain degree My favorite scenes is the segment of the bears making trouble to honey Farmer .In a dream they actually got trained bears to lift the honey box in the cart.I don't know how the film makers did it.Other favorites are the Little humped back Horse and Othello Ballet from the Bolshoi theater .The dancers playing Russian peasant doing High energetic dancing, The introduction is swift and the screen get large after words.I will tell you the shorts in other titles it came with on other i.m.d.b. pages .11/17/16.I.m.d.b does not have one of the shorts Concord ,1966.So I'll tell your here .The short shows you the newest plane being invented and how it's going to be great for airplane travel.It's a dead duck now .11/17/16.
