This feature-length documentary was put together by Moscow Central Newsreel. In entertainingly propagandistic fashion, Black Sea Fighters recounts the courage of the citizens of Sevastopol, who for eight months staved off the attacking Nazis. With little protection and virtually no provisions, the Soviet military and civilian forces managed to deplete the German forces by some 300,000 men. At the end of the siege, Savastopol is in a rubble, but the spirit of the people is indomitable. The English-language version of Black Sea Fighters was scripted by Clifford Odets and narrated by Fredric March.
