Alexander Nevsky (Film) is a 1938 Soviet historical drama film directed by Sergei Eisenstein. It depicts the attempted invasion of Novgorod in the 13th century by the Teutonic Knights of the Holy Roman Empire and their defeat by Prince Alexander, known popularly as Alexander Nevsky (1220-1263). Eisenstein made the film in association with Dmitri Vasilyev and with a script co-written with Pyotr Pavlenko; they were assigned to ensure that Eisenstein did not stray into "formalism" (a school of literary criticism in Russia from the 1910s to the 1930s disfavored by Joseph Stalin) and to facilitate shooting on a reasonable timetable. It was produced by Goskino via the Mosfilm production unit, with Nikolai Cherkasov in the title role and a musical score by Sergei Prokofiev. Alexander Nevsky was the first and most popular of Eisenstein's three sound films. Eisenstein, Pavlenko, Cherkasov and Abrikosov were awarded the Stalin Prize in 1941 for the film. In 1978, the film was included in the world's 100 best motion pictures according to an opinion poll conducted by the Italian publishing house Arnoldo Mondadori Editore.

Alexander Nevsky, Russian prince and saint (May 13, 1221- November 14, 1263) was #born in Pereslavl-Zalessky (a town in Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia) in the principality of Vladimir-Suzdal, traditionally perceived as a cradle of the Great Russian language and nationality, and which gradually evolved into the Grand Duchy of Moscow. St. Alexander Yaroslavich Nevsky served as Prince of Novgorod (1236-40, 1240-56 and 1258-1259), Grand Prince of Kiev (1236-52) and Grand Prince of Vladimir (1252-63) during some of the most difficult times in Kievan Rus' history. Commonly regarded as a key figure of medieval Rus, St. Alexander, the grandson of Vsevolod the Big Nest, rose to legendary status on account of his military victories over German and Swedish invaders while agreeing to pay tribute to the powerful Golden Horde. He was canonized as a saint of the Russian Orthodox Church by Metropolite Macarius in 1547. Nevsky was responsible for a historic military victory that eventually became commemorated as a Russian Day of Military Honour: 18 April - Victory over the Teutonic Knights in the Battle of the Ice, 1242. The Days of Military Honour are special memorable dates in the Russian Armed Forces dedicated to the most outstanding victories won by Russia. Some of these dates are state holidays but the majority of them is celebrated purely in the military. During the Battle on the Ice of Lake Peipus, Russian forces of the Republic of Novgorod, led by Prince Alexander Nevsky, rebuff an invasion attempt by the crusader army led by the Livonian branch of the Teutonic Knights on April 5, 1242. The battle is notable for having been fought largely on the frozen lake, and this gave the battle its name. The battle was a significant defeat sustained by the crusaders during the Northern Crusades, which were directed against pagans and Eastern Orthodox Christians rather than Muslims in the Holy Land. The Crusaders' defeat in the battle marked the end of their campaigns against the Orthodox Novgorod Republic and other Slavic territories for the next century. The event was glorified in Sergei Eisenstein's historical drama film Alexander Nevsky, released in 1938, which created a popular image of the battle often mistaken for the real events. Sergei Prokofiev turned his score for the film into a concert cantata of the same title, with "The Battle on the Ice" being its longest movement. On November 14, 1263, while Returning from one of his frequent visits to the Golden Horde, Alexander died in the town of Gorodets-on-the-Volga on his way back from the Goden Horde capital of Sarai. Prior to his death, he took monastic vows and was given the religious name of Alexis. #AlexanderNevsky #RussianSaints #RussianOrthodoxChurchSaints #RussianOrthodoxSaints #PrincesOfNovgorod #GrandPrincesOfKiev #GrandDukeOfVladimir #DaysOfMilitaryHonour #RussianDaysOfMilitaryHonour #RussianHolidays #RussianMilitaryHoliday #TheBattleOnTheIce #BattleOfTheIce #LakePeipus #KievanRus #Rus #Ruthenia #NovgorodRepublic #TeutonicKnights #LivonianOrder #NorthernCrusades #BalticCrusades #Russia #RussianHistory #HistoryOfRussia #DVD #VideoDownload #MP4 #USBFlashDrive
