Mister Twister1963

  • 4.0
Based on a popular children’s poem by Samuel Marshak, Anatoly Karanovich’s animation is a cheerful indictment of American racism. The titular millionaire visits Leningrad from Chicago and turns several shades of mad when he discovers a black man staying at his hotel. A clever concierge conspires with his colleagues across the city to teach the capitalist a lesson. Doubling as an advertisement for the Soviet image of tolerance projected by the World Peace Congress (mentioned in the film), MISTER TWISTER nonetheless draws artistic inspiration from the American cartoons produced by the UPA studio.

Soviet propaganda dah! Yet delightful and imaginative story of ingrained racism turned upside down.
