Movie-A-Day #121: East Side Story (1997).

May 1, 2011

Happy May Day! It’s also International Workers Day, which was traditionally the day that the Soviet Union and the other Eastern Bloc countries would ladle on the bombast with huge parades and displays of military might. But lest you think the old school Communists were all military precision and no play, check out “East Side Story,” a documentary about the string of musicals churned out behind the Iron Curtain in the 1950s and 1960s.
