THE PARTY CARD (1936) * with switchable English subtitles *

Ivan Pyrev (as Ivan Pyryev) Writer: Ekaterina Vinogradskaya Stars: Andrei Abrikosov, Anatoliy Goryunov, Igor Maleyev

Yasha, who likes Anna, houses the Siberian, Pavel Kuganov, who later becomes a class-conscious worker in a factory. Anna refuses Yasha's offer of marriage, so he therefore runs off to Siberia. After Pavel is hailed as a hero, because he survives an accident in the factory (which, in fact, is the result of his sabotage), Anna marries him. Pavel then becomes a reckless, communist careerist, but only on the surface. In fact, he's a traitor to the country and a spy, and gives Anna's party ID card to the enemy. Anna is expelled from the Communist Party. Yasha returns from Siberia, only to find Anna desperate. They reveal the truth about Pavel (that he's a kulak who killed a kolkhoz co-op leader), which means the end for him.

DVD-R is in Russian with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 93 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!

I was very pleased with the content and form of this movie. Its an interesting film about a kulak who is part of an anti Soviet organization trying to worm his way into a defence plant for the purposes of sabotage. A rare and entertaining film.

Perhaps the most morally reprehensible Soviet film of the 1930s. Among the goals of the film was to contribute to the cult of the Party card, the losing of which was considered a major infraction of Party discipline. Amidst the hysteria and paranoia of Party coercion, many Party members carried their cards like millstones in a canvas bag on a chain around their necks. If this film is entertainment, it was meant to use the cultural pastime of cinema to instill fear in the hearts of the Soviet viewer.
