Kino Releases Soviet Classic The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom (1924) on DVD

August 16, 2011 by  

New York, NY – August 16, 2011 – Kino Lorber is proud to release on DVD a brand-new restoration of the Soviet classic The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom (1924), directed by Yuri Zhelyabuzhsky (The Emperor’s New Clothes).

Mastered from 35mm elements restored by the Cinémathèque De toulouse, in cooperation with L’Immagine Ritrovata and the Foundation Groupama Gan pour le Cinéma, this classic film will finally become available on DVD on August 30, 2011, with a SRP of $29.95.

Exploding the myth that the Soviet silent cinema was limited to political propaganda, Yuri Zhelyabuzhsky’s The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom is a playful romantic comedy set on the streets of 1924 Moscow, occasionally peeking behind the scenes of the Mezhrabpom-Rus Studios.

Yuliya Solntseva stars as a tobacco vendor on the sidewalk outside Moscow’s Mosselprom Trade Center, who must juggle the attentions of three disparate suitors: a young cameraman, a romantic and slightly zany bookkeeper, and a wealthy American industrialist.
