Legendary Hollywood director Frank Capra oversaw this wartime documentary effort, which stitches together newsreel and archival film to explore relations between Russia and the United States. The film also recounts Russia's military history through the use of stock footage and clips from Sergei Eisenstein's "Alexander Nevsky."
