The Overcoat

Gogol's tale of a shabby clerk transformed into a man of charm and power by the purchase of a new overcoat, filmed in 1960 by Soviet actor Alexei Batalov. Polished but conventional in the manner of most Russian literary mountings, the Soviet equivalent of Masterpiece Theatre taxidermy.
