Saw it first hand. lived in Poland in 1962-65.
Our own schools are doing revisionist history, but not nearly to this extent.
BTW, when was the last time we saw a Blockbuster Russian (or Soviet) film?
Gosh, but I love Capitalism!

If we are offending communists, we must be doing something right!

Yeah, it's been some time since we had any Russian blockbusters. (Didn't realized you actually had lived in Poland, Bum...)

Battleship Potemkin
Alexander Nevsky
Ivan the Terrible (parts 1 and 2)
Ballad of a Soldier

Wait a minute. So, someone from Russia thinks that Natasha Fatale of Boris and Natasha from the Bullwinkle shop is real? They probably think the movies George Clooney makes are true to life also.
