The warrior-hero Ruslan rescues his princess bride Ludmila from the evil white-bearded dwarf Tchernomor in this spectacular Soviet retelling of Alexander Pushkin's famous poem (which also inspired an opera). The dwarf gains uncanny physical strength from his long white beard. Ruslan must also battle sorcerers and witches, as well as his bride's other suitor, in order to win through to Ludmila.
