What I think of the South.

BLACK AND WHITE (1932) by Ivan Ivanov-Vano and Leonid Amalrik.

Aside from being pro Lenin, I see a certain amount of truth here.

Are those unretouched photos of the two women, or have they been "anger enhanced"? Very scary images, at any rate. Maybe they are photographs of the same woman, just getting angrier by stages. They kind of spooked me, like the pictures from dime novels that frightened the Our Gang kids in the 1930s. The "Black and White" Soviet animated cartoon was one of the most interesting I've seen. I liked the scenes of the black clergyman taking a pineapple bribe from the plantation boss. The perspective animation of the palm tree road and the city buildings was very effective, hypnotic in a way that CG never is. Dostvedanya, Kamerade!

Hi, Mark;
I believe the photos to be the same woman. They had been posted on Facebook without ID.

Often photo sessions were made of actresses going through emotions. I believe these to be from that kind of sat.
