Russia suffered some heavy losses in WW II and its movie studios were no exception. This was supposed to whip the natives to a patriotic pitch, but instead made them turn away from the screen because of the laughable production. In a typical heart-tugging war story, a young orphan is

adopted by an army regiment and the gruff commander. The Germans are taken prisoner and they display their evilness. In the heat of battle the kid finally becomes part of the army. The fitting climax features the kid in the grand march in front of the Soviet leader in a Moscow parade before

screaming crowds--and everyone is proud to be a Russian. (In Russian; English subtitles.)
