Fougasse (Cyril Kenneth Bird) (1887-1965)



2 x 3 ¼ inches

Punch 14 April 1954, Page 455


Surfeited with films about stakhanovite twist-drillers overfulfilling their norms, soviet cinema goers are demanding livelier entertainment, and the moscow director, gregori alexandrov, is reported to be engaging mr gary cooper and others for a picture about five visitors from the west turned loose in the u.s.s.r. if this catches on, there may soon be as fanatical a following for the 'eastern' among eastern audiences as for the 'western' among western; they may have to be brought back to reality by the engagement of mr errol flynn, now rested up after his conquest of burma, for a series on the lives of the great russian inventors.
