A 1949 fable, written by Sergey Mikhalkov, directed by Aleksandr Ivanov, music by Mieczysław Weinberg (Moisey Vainberg). Subtitles by me. (to turn on subtitles, click on the triangle at the bottom right of the video and turn on CC-English). A Russian CC track can also be turned on. Commentary about the film can be found over here:
