Boris Chirskov won a Best Screenplay Award at the Cannes Film Festival for this rousing Soviet war epic directed by famed communist filmmaker Fridrikh Ermler. A reflection of the director's staunch political beliefs, this classic piece of propaganda -- which co-stars Mikhail Derzhavin, Pyotr Andriyevsky, Yuri Tolubeyev, Andrei Abrikosov and Aleksandr Zrazhevsky as Russian officers -- also took the Golden Palm at Cannes.
