Best Adventure Movies of 1955

A story about three circus actors and their adventures. Based on classic novel by Aleksandr Kuprin.
Soldier Ivan Brovkin
This exhilarating two-part film (â€œSoldier Ivan Brovkinâ€ and â€œIvan Brovkin on the State Farmâ€) presented to the country a new national hero â€“ kind, modest, charming andâ€¦ neâ€™er-do-well. That â€œneâ€™er-do-well-nessâ€ proved â€œKharitonovâ€™s special key to audiencesâ€™ heartsâ€. Following Brovkinâ€™s appearance on the screen, Kharitonov had become a star of the national cinema, an idol for millions of people. His incredible popularity may be compared to that of another national hero â€“ the worldâ€™s first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. And not surprisingly, it was Kharitonov who made a cameo appearance going up the festival stairs and followed with the adoring eyes of the heroines in V. Menshovâ€™s Oscar-winning melodrama â€œMoscow Does Not Believe in Tearsâ€.
