The fifth War-Loan Drive was drawing to a close in late 1944, but Russian films like Two Soldiers still made the rounds in America to raise extra funds. The title characters are an Odessan seaman and a Ural blacksmith, played by Mark Bernes and Boris Andreyev, respectively. Though they enjoy squabbling over their social and ethnic differences, the two comrades stick together like glue whenever a crisis looms. Ultimately, the soldiers are united once more on the battlefield, proving with finality their fidelity to one another -- and to the Soviet cause. The film is enhanced by several lively musical interludes, spotlighting traditional ethnic and military songs.
