Even my liberal colleague Lou Lumenick calls the FDR-commissioned USSR propaganda piece “Mission to Moscow” “jaw-dropping.” Now it’ll be available on DVD. Lou has led a noble crusade to get the film more attention for its historical importance. FDR (who is portrayed in godlike fashion, as the Great Man who calls a humble reporter in for some fact-finding about Stalinland) ordered up the movie to get America on board with the idea that Joe Stalin was our buddy, at least until the war was over. So what was Walter Duranty’s excuse? More news on this coming soon, Lou promises.
