Optimistic Tragedy War Revolution Film


Original vintage Soviet movie poster for an award winning blockbuster Civil War film - Optimistic Tragedy / Оптимистическая трагедия / Optimisticheskaya tragediya - based on a play by Vsevolod Vishnevsky and directed by Samson Samsonov, set during the 1917 Russian Revolution about an anarchist leader Vozhak (played by Boris Andreyev) from the Marine squad and a Bolshevik Commissar (played by Margarita Volodina). Great design featuring a black and white image of the commissar looking out to the viewer with a red shaded image of large guns and armed soldiers in the background, one holding a flag billowing in the wind, and the stylised title text below. This film was a success in the Soviet Union with 46 million tickets sold; it won the Best Evocation of a World-Shattering Epic award at the Cannes Film Festival and Boris Andreyev won the Best Supporting Actor Golden Gate Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
