Hi,

One of our Slavic professors requested film or clips of political show trials
described as follows:

English-language films that show the proceedings of the political show trials of
Soviet political leaders and others during the late 1930s. these trials, os
such political figures as Bukharin, Zinoview, Kamenev, and many others, were the
first example of show trials in which political enemies were tried for their
"crimes" in proceedings that were highly publicized via movie and newspaper
publications.

I've had no luck in finding any and thought I'd ask if any of you had knowledge
of any titles. Thanks in advance.
