Description

Details

Sergei Eisenstein's epic production tells the story of one of Russia's most famous and ruthless leaders.

The first part chronicles Ivan's (Nikolai Cherkassov) childhood, coronation, marriage and subsequent illness. Eisenstein juxtaposes striking imagery with a stirring score by Prokofiev.

In Part 2, Ivan continues his bloody struggle with the Boyars and the Church.

Stalin, initially a supporter of the project, objected to Eisenstein's depiction of the Russian leader in the second part, and the film was not released until 1958.
