Generalissimo Stalin visits Berlin

From Mikheil Chiaureli’s Padeniye Berlina / Fall of Berlin (1949)

Part of the Stalin Film genre, The Fall of Berlin is regarded as the ultimate glorification of the Soviet dictator on celluloid, pretty much deifying him as a benevolent peacemaker who likes to tend to his little garden, and glad-handing the country’s award-winning workers when not single-handedly rescuing the nation from whatever trauma pops up on the horizon.
