Alexander Nevsky

The work of director Sergei Eisenstein helped to create the universal language of cinema and his 1938 masterpiece Alexander Nevsky is no exception. With a spectacular score by Sergei Prokofiev, it was a rousing call to the Russian people—and a neat bit of propaganda for Stalin. Eisenstein had the use of the Russian army for battle scenes, and his detailed staging, particularly the Battle of the Ice (fought on Lake Peipus in 1242), makes for a stirring patriotic spectacle.
