Pro-Stalin Film: “Mission to Moscow”

In this short clip from the notorious, pro-Stalin film from 1943, “Mission to Moscow,” Walter Huston, playing the American ambassador, Joseph E. Davies, smears pre-war non-interventionists, defends the Soviet invasion of Finland, and depicts the Soviets as peace-loving.

Apparently, Davies was not a typical fellow traveler. According to Soviet archives, he purchased art at discount prices that had been confiscated from purge victims.
