About the movie

Born in the family of a miller, the nameless protagonist is expelled by his father for his categorical unwillingness to do at least some kind of work, with the exception of playing the violin. The resilient loafer sets off to wander, easily lighting a fire along the way in the hearts of all the ladies and girls he meets along the way, experiencing many adventures and not at all intending to give up his frivolous lifestyle.

IMDB tells us this movie isn't that good (the link opens in a new window), but... imagine this poster framed with a nice big passe-partout hanging on your living room wall?! We just couldn't take our eyes off the pattern in the background. 


This poster has some imperfections. If they are within the image, they are likely noticeable, but not distracting.

Addition: read the article about vintage movie posters from the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc.
