Plot synopsis
A rare, hilarious cinematic oddity, a film formulated from Kuleshov montage techniques from footage of the famous American couple's visit to Russia in 1926, wherein a regular guy tries to win a girl through friendship with the movie stars. Fairbanks and Pickford didn't know of their role in the film, being spliced in later according to montage theory. Silent film with Ukranian subtitles.
