The evolution of Soviet-era Russia's state-sponsored cinema can be traced in this four-disc collection. Director Lev Kuleshov follows an American's visit to Moscow in "The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in the Land of the Bolsheviks" (1924) and adapts a Jack London Yukon tale in "By the Law" (1926); Dziga Vertov transforms a commissioned salute to the Moscow Soviet into the experimental odyssey "Stride, Soviet" (1926); newsreel footage is combined by Esther Shub to chronicle "The Fall of the Romanov Dynasty" (1927); a farmgirl, duck in tow, arrives in Moscow and tries to cope with city life in Boris Barnet's "The House on Trubnaya" (1928); "Old and New" (1929), Sergei Eisenstein's final silent effort, looks at peasant life on farming collectives; the hazard-filled building of the Turkestan-Siberian railway is the focus of Victor Turin's documentary "Turksib" (1929); and filmmaker Mikhail Kalatozov turns his camera on a remote Georgian mountain village in "Salt for Svanetia" (1930). 10 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: music score. Silent with music score.
