Fairy Tale Matinée: The Three Fat Men (1967)
The Movie Explorer reviews The Three Fat Men, a Soviet kiddie film. Outrageous Communist propaganda disguised as a cutesy story about circus folk and the repair of a child's mechanical doll.
Still pretty crude. I taped this review the same day as the Flesh Feast review and it shows. My delivery improved tenfold in future reviews. Mind you, the Russian names tended to be tongue-twisters for me (Suok's especially, you wouldn't think someone with a four-letter name would present such a difficulty in pronunciation.) This was also filmed the same day my dad was undergoing surgery, so I had THAT on my mind, too.
Please refrain from "In Soviet Russia, ____ ____s YOU!" type comments. If you think you're being clever, you're very, very much mistaken.
