Summary
"In their relentless battle against Hitler, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were comrades ... or at least comrades-in-arms. Hollywood joined the fight with Mission to Moscow, based on Ambassador Joseph E. Davies' bestseller about his pre-World War II experiences in the Soviet Union. The film features Academy Award winner Walter Huston as Davies, plus accomplished actors playing the headline-dominating figures of Churchill, Stalin, von Ribbentrop, Litvinov, Molotov and more. For its sometimes-sympathetic picture of Stalin's regime, the film sparked impassioned debate then and remains fascinating now, both for its insights into early American-Soviet relations and its urgent sense of the danger the emerging Axis Powers posed to the world"--Container
