Lev Tolstoy in Yasnaya Polyana (1908-1910) -- Rare documentary




The first shots of the silent film montage (Lev Tolstoy celebrating his eightieth birthday party in 1908) were taken by Aleksandr Osipovich Drankov (1886-1949), and his two assistants, I. S. Frolov and V. Vasiliev. It seems to be the first film taken of Tolstoy.
