"You see the manicured

starlets driving tractors

"and the happy women

who come from work singing.


"Incidentally, I have

never seen so much

smiling in my life,

"except on the murals

of the World's Fair

pavilion of the Soviet.

"It is one of the stock

propaganda tricks

of the Communists,

"to show these people smiling.

"That is all they can show."

So here we are,

uh, two years

after the war ends,

and, uh...


Louis B. Mayer

is apologizing

to the committee

for having made it.

And Robert Taylor

is apologizing

to the committee

for having starred in it.

And, uh...

And Ayn Rand is saying

it was a false picture

from beginning to end

because it showed

Russians smiling

and everybody knows that

Russians don't smile.

Well, the fact is,

it was not

a totally honest picture,

it was designed

as war propaganda.

Uh, it did have a

rosy view of the Russians,

including a lot of

expressions of how

grateful they are

to the United States

for aid and for

providing tractors.

And, uh, the tractor's

the best tractor

in the world

because it comes

from the United States.

I mean, there was

a lot of fake

pro-American stuff

in the-the film too.


It was a direct


of what was going on

at the time.

And it was meant

to reinforce the notion

that we have an ally,

an ally that's, uh, uh...

making enormous sacrifices

in human life,

and we're all

in this together

in the fight

against fascism.


Although, he couldn't make

his case in 1947,

Jarrico won

the argument by default.

Everyone knew that

Song of Russia

was simply a relic

from an improbable

but necessary alliance,

and Rand failed

to convince most people

that Communists

had subverted the movies.
