    • Abstract:
      This article presents information on the motion pictures produced in the Soviet Union. Russian films such as "Potemkin," "Czar Ivan the Terrible," and "The End of St. Petersburg," are masterpieces which has been acclaimed by the world. It is natural that discussion of films, as of everything else connected with Soviet Russia, should be tinged with a certain amount of sensationalism. The enhanced interest in and appreciation of Soviet art-if such is the effect of this sensationalism-is all to the good. One will have to be content with a dispassionate discussion of the merits of Soviet films irrespective of other considerations.
