The Great Red Way

From International Historic Films Catalog 19-C:


This delirious documentary unveils a part of film history until now unknown in the west: Communist musicals. Featuring hearty peasants and workers singing and dancing their way through fields and factories, these Hollywood-style musicals interpret American escapism in socialist terms...making East Side Story a one-of-a-kind "That's Entertainment, Comrade!"
