This undistinguished, anti-communist documentary was the only film ever directed by William Faralla and was meant to take advantage of popular sentiment at the time it was released. Basil Rathbone metaphorically represents History and Mary Murphy is perhaps the Western free world. Both narrate a self-inflated dialogue that is accompanied by images from archival footage and old newsreels that picture various ignominious moments in communist history. Some Russian atrocities are illustrated and narrated, though in general the narration is wobbly on actual facts and comes across as a weak attempt at literacy.
