Watching some Soviet films

I've been watching Soviet movies on You Tube. They're very good.

It took me a while to recognize it, but one was based on the same Jules Verne novel as the Disney movie, In Search of the Castaways with Haley Mills and Maurice Chevalier. The Soviet one was made in 1936 and had several songs in it.

Watched a World War Two movie. Several Soviet soldiers apparently speak flawless German. They dress as Nazis and go behind enemy lines and kill a bunch of them.

A couple of movies set during the Civil War.

They're all beautifully made, all with a similar look to them.

I can understand a word here and there, but they have no subtitles which is a bit of an impediment to my following the stories.
