Summary As much deity as dictator to his people, Josef Stalin and his terror cast indelibly long shadows over Soviet life and imagination. When, in March 1953, news of Stalin's death threw Soviet life into stunned disbelief, contemporaries described nothing less than "a rupture in time." An extraordinary cycle of state-orchestrated mourning and spontaneous grief followed, much of it conveyed in this remarkable documentary, intended by the Soviet authorities as the definitive account of history's greatest loss. Ranging widely across the Soviet Union and points beyond--from Warsaw to Moscow to Beijing and Korean War battlefronts, and culminating in the dictator's colossal Red Square funeral--The great farewell captures the bombastic pomp and intrigue-packed circumstance of High Stalinism at its zenith
