1938 directed by Sergei Eisenstein starring Nikolai Cherkasov, Nikolai Okhlopkov and Andrei Abrikosov. In the 13th century Russia has been overrun by foreign invaders. A Russian knyaz’, or prince, Alexander Nevsky, rallies the people to form an army to combat an invasion by Teutonic knights. This is a true story based on the battle at a lake near Novgorod. This is not the Criterion Collection release. This is the copy that was initially released on videotape with the poor soundtrack and white subtitles that are often difficult to read. I did what I could with the sound and video.
