Product Description

This documentary examines the incredible lives and work of Michael Chekhov and George Shdanoff, two actor/artists who escaped Revolutionary Russia and World War II to Hollywood, where they created a school of acting which offered an alternative to the methods of Stanislavsky and Strasberg. They went on to coach many leading Hollywood stars in their Oscar-winning roles.


The passionate testimony and delightful behind the scenes anecdotes of Hollywood screen vets... form the heart of this valentine to two influential and beloved teachers of the thespian craft [Michael Chekhov and George Shdanoff]. From Russia to Hollywood is an intriging intro to the work of these men. From Russia to Hollywood is a captivating look at a seldom explored Hollywood lineage. --Variety
