Bear Hunt in Russia was the companion feature to the Pathe drama Masquerader's Charity. The wintry landscapes of Russia were given ample display by the Pathe photographers, who despite their frostbitten fingers were able to keep grinding their cameras in perfect rhythm. A group of hunters is "surprised" by a bear, which to the jaundiced viewer appeared to have been goaded into its ferocity. The subsequent tracking down and killing of the bear is offered in all its gruesome detail. Nobody in 1909 was unduly upset by this carnage; in fact, it is likely that the audience applauded the climactic slaughter.
