article imageSoviet propaganda cartoons come to video

By RobotGod     Feb 3, 2007 in World
The four-DVD set 'Animated Soviet Propaganda' opens the vaults on decades of Cold War humor.
"Black and White," produced in 1933, depicted a highway with an endless row of blacks lynched on telephone poles. "The Millionaire," made in 1963, told the story of a rich American woman who leaves $1 million to her pet bulldog, who becomes so wealthy and powerful that he eventually is elected to Congress.
I would love to see this. What an amazing look at a very important moment in time. Through their eyes. From the perspective of the goverment who made them, and the people who would see them. They blended alot of russian folk tales in with these stories as well. This is a true gem for any historian interested in getting a feel for that time.
