Mission to Moscow
Edited by David Culbert

Wisconsin/Warner Bros. screenplay series
Tino Balio, Series Editor

Mission to Moscow is a notorious classic among propaganda films produced in the United States. Never has another feature film been made with such explicit direction from the federal government, although the result failed to persuade every viewer.


Tino Balio , Professor in the Department of Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, is the author of United Artists: The Company Built by the Stars, United Artists: The Company That Changed the Film Industry, and the editor of The American Film Industry as well as the 22 volume Wisconsin/Warner Bros. Screenplay series, all published by the University of Wisconsin Press. He directed the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theatre Research from 1966 to 1882.

the cover of Mission to Moscow features a film still that shows only a huge room with a map of the USSR on the wall.
