Ivan the Terrible Vol I and II **** intelluctual stimulation
Both these films, even though produced in the 1940's, contain a wealth of Russian history. While the acting is much less than what we see today, it still presents an interesting view from the standpoint of the Tsar and his followers. Being one who has an interest in the history of early Russia, I have found both volumes to be a good resource for understanding, in particular, the live of Ivan. If you look for glamour and glitz, and oscar winning performances, you won't find it in these films; what you will find is a stimulating look at the life of one of the most noted Tsars of Russia and the legacy he left to his country. I perfer old classic films and these two volumes are an absolute treasure.
