Scope and content
The film is constructed as a montage of documentary photographs and film clips, taken during and after V. I. Lenin's life. There is footage of the memorable places where Lenin lived and worked, as well as significant places associated with Lenin after his death, including the Mausoleum and archives of the Marxism-Leninism University. The film includes personal accounts of people close to Lenin, including Anatoly Vasilyevich Lunacharsky, Maxim Gorki, Gleb Krijanovski, sculptor Aronson, Mayakovski, John Reed, Sergey Esenin, Nadezda Krupskaya, Bertram Russell and more recollections of Lenin's colleagues. The film also briefly displays footage of Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw's visit to the USSR in the 1930s. The Brest-Litovsk agreement and the Civil War situation in Russia are mentioned. The film concludes with praise of Lenin's importance to every person in the vast Soviet Union.
Fair. The films are beginning to show signs of vinegar syndrome.
