You could try and caompare it to Zhivago but the 1937 film has a charm of its own, its better. Use Amazon to get a copy, I have a feeling there are different versions though but all are brilliant!
The film surprisingly finds no difference between Whites and Reds: both execute exactly the same kind of people with the same guns against the same walls as the country falls to bits around them, all strikingly realised in Lazare Meerson's vivid production design. There's a genuinely epic feel to the film too, and plenty of vivid vignettes - a quietly insane stationmaster announcing non-existent trains, a smitten young commissar saving the lovers - that carry you through despite the awkwardness of the storytelling and the lack of fire to the romance. Not a great film, certainly, but certainly a much more interesting one than expected. Keep an eye out for an uncredited Miklos Rozsa as a pianist!
how bleak and dangerous it was to be caught up in the Russian revolution.Fine performances by Donat and Dietrich.It makes you wonder at how people were able to both lose and keep their humanity in those times.I intend to put this one in my collection of classics.
