Monumental Mysteries: A Communist Comes To America

A strange dramatization of the Lenin of Poprad coming to Seattle saga compiled for a series Monumental Mysteries, published under the title A Communist Comes To America.

Full of factual mistakes, with imagery in wrong places, and a weird actor portraying Lewis Carpenter without the slightest effort to look and act as him.

But then, perhaps it can be said about most documentaries. Except that nobody save the people involved know how what the mistakes are!

Enjoy the video — make sure you start watching from 14:56. It's only about 7 minutes long.

Had Lew ever seen this, I think he would just would wave his hand and say it's trash — but who would refuse a free advertisement on TV?!
