Mary & Doug Travel to Russia

Admirers of the advanced state of Soviet filmmaking, particularly Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin, Doug and Mary extended their annual trip to Europe to visit Moscow in July, 1926. They were greeted by an outpouring of interest from fans they didn’t know they had and footage from the trip was made into A Kiss from Mary Pickford by the Russian director Sergei Komarov.
