He was at one time a diplomat, acclaimed for helping end the Cold War - that, before he ws accused of conducting a reign of terror. Next to Mikhail Gorbachev, Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze was, up until the end of 1991, the best known and most well-liked of the Soviet leaders. To officials in the United States, he was a welcome change. Shevardnadze's predecessor, Andrei Gromyko, was known as "Dr. Nyet", "Mr. Nyet" or "Grim Grom", for his habit of always saying "No" to American proposals, and because of his frequent use of the Soviet veto in the United Nations Security Council. Shevardnadze, on the other hand, had a working relationship with United States Secretary of State James Baker, and was considered one of the architects of the end of the Cold War. When on December 20, 1990, Shevardnadze publicly resigned from the Gorbachev administration to protest what he called "the coming dictatorship". But, did he himself create in Georgia what he said he feared the most about Gorbachev's Soviet Union? When Shevardnadze became head of the ruling council of the former Soviet republic of Georgia, many people saw him not as the polished diplomat, but rather as a communist boss with strong arms that reached inside the hated KGB. That's the subject of this controversial film (Color, 1992, 46 Minutes).
