  • Short Summary

    Russian Communist are deported from Jersey City, New York in the United States of America.

  • Description

    The US government deports Russian Communists back to Russia, Jersey city, New Brunswick in the United States of America. Full titles read: "Reds return to Russia. US Government deport undesirable Bolshies - with single tickets only!"

    The film opens with some lovely animated footage. Framed circular mask shot of undesirable Russians, they are a scruffy looking bunch of individuals with rough uncut shaggy beards! They stand at the stern of ship named "The Soviet Ark". They wave at us.

    M/S of the real thing we see the Russians boarding a ship at dockside, (they don't look quite as undesirable!) most of them are wearing overcoats. One of the men looks to be carrying a violin or viola. The men board the lower decks of the ship via a gangplank. A dock worker supervises the proceedings. We see a L/S of a ship steaming away into the distance. There is a nice backdrop of Jersey city in the background.
