lenin gave cinema a very huge boost: every one in ussr knows his slogan:
THE MOST IMPORTANT ART FOR US IS CINEMA
usually healthy anticommunists from sovok add to it this :
BECAUSE WITH THE CINEMA WE CAN MANIPULATE IDIOTS TO THE UNPRECEDENTED DEGREE
I used to see this slogan all over in sovok. Lenin KNEW how to influence morons better then devil himself
lots of early cinema came from soviet russia and Ukraine of course(Dovjenko)
So unprecedented ACTIVE MEASURES were applied by KGB at all aspects of American movie making:
subversion, bribing, threats, plots of different kinds, honey traps, murder, blackmail
lots of it will never surface but lots of it is known and well described in THIS ARTICLE and HERE AS WELL
"The plain fact is that anti-Soviet or anti-Communist films not only do not win Academy Awards in the U.S., they do not even get made.
The reason for this want of anti-Soviet films has been well documented in Kenneth Lloyd Billingsley's Hollywood Party: How Communism Seduced the American Film Industry in the 1930s and 1940s. The 1930s and '40s, writes Billingsley, saw thick veins of Communist influence running through the Hollywood studio system. Studio Stalinism, the underground movement to smuggle Communist ideology into American cinema, found a surplus of useful idiots in Hollywood, many of them disillusioned with capitalism and enamored with the so-called Russian Experiment."
HERE IS A PERFECT MATERIAL FOR A REALLY GOOD FILM IF ANYONE GETS INTERESTED WE CAN NEGOTIATE A PRODUCTION PROJECT TO CONFRONT THE ANTI-AMERICAN COMMUNIST ENEMY
Also, about a week ago i was reading about Krivonis-Symchych, a Ukrainian UPA fighter, who is still alive at 85.
In the 40s his 100 guys member brigade managed to encircle and destroy an NKVD DIVISION of several thousands bastards, the exactly same NKVD division that deported Crimea Tatars , Chechens and conducted multiple other atrocities.
Kryvonis spent 50-60-70-up to the mid 80s in jails and camps of GULAG
Miraculously survived and returned home finally.
Once in the camp he lead other prisoners against the group of 200 criminals who were terrorizing inmates: at night they sealed the barrack with criminals and put it on fire. No single shit-ass survived, they successfully killed all 200 bastards.
KGB was not able to make a SINGLE person talk in the investigation.
NO ONE talked. That was there spirit.
There was a picture of young Kryvonis in that article here
