This uneven, pretentious satire finds salesman Cyrus Barnwhistle Diner (director Neil Sullivan doing a dreadful W.C. Fields imitation)) traveling to Russia. He meets Trotsky, Stalin, Rasputin and Hitler during his journey. Sullivan also co-wrote the music for this ambitious but unsuccessful feature. Footage of John Barrymore in the 1920 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde adds nothing to the film, although both were filmed at the Eastern Service Studio in Long Island.
