Figure 1: Alexander Nevsky (1938)
Exhorting the Knights of the Teuton Order to invaded Russia in the 13th century, a Roman Catholic priest wears a mitre adorned with an ornate swastika, [00:39:21]. Based on Prince Aleksandr Yaroslavch (1220-163) and his defeat of German and Swedish invaders, this film was intended to unify Russians against an expected German invasion and give a warning to the Nazis that the Russians would fight. Ironically, it is also a symbol of Polish neo-paganism.

Directed by Sergei Eisenstein. Music by Sergei Prokofiev. b&w mono USSR, Russian, 1938 108 min.
