Lyenin V Oktyabrye

Lenin in October could be Lenin at any other time and still be a highly interesting production. Ranks with Gulliver and other Red films as one of the finest productions to emanate from the Soviet film factories. Treatment belies the impression that Moscow produces naught but soap-boxes, film being an accurate historical chronology. Could well be listed among action-romances but for labeled origin. It's a good super-artie.

Pic deals out reams of comedy, suspense, drama and assorted histrionics. Boris Shchukin’s characterization of Lenin is an excellent performance.
