Karnavalnaya noch / Carnival in Moscow (1956) Eldar Ryazanov, Igor Ilyinsky, Lyudmila Gurchenko, Yuri Belov, Comedy, Musical, Romance

This Russian musical manages to satirize Soviet life without ever offending the Politburo. The story concerns a group of young stage performers who, in true Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland fashion, wanna put on a swell show. Trouble is, the hidebound Ministry of Culture expects the kids to do a propaganda piece. Undaunted, our heroes and heroines stage the show their way, finding fun and romance along the way. One of the best bits involves a jazz band which disguises itself as a long-haired classical orchestra in order to sneak by the cultural watchdogs.
