I Served in Stalin's Guard, an Experiment in Documentary Mythology (aka I was Stalin's Bodyguard)

This controversial documentary created a storm in Russia by taking off the cloak from a violent, repressive era in Soviet history. The filmmaker found the last surviving personal bodyguard of Josef Stalin, who began working for him in the 1930s. Weaves together unprecendented, first-hand testimony with rare footage, including Stalin's home movies. Directed by Semyon Aranovich. 1989. 73 min.
