Ex-Soviet Movie

Date Created: 14 June 2017

During the Second Wolrd War (Great Patriotic War in the ex-USSR) in 1944 a 72 year old Kazakhi berkutchi Suleiman Takimov - falconer from "Oktober" kolkhoz-artel  in Jambul District of Alma-Ata Region of Kazakhstan was delivered to Moscow together with his Golden Eagle Karatyget (in translation from Kazakhi into English - "Black Tiger") for participation in shooting movie "Law of Great Love" about love among animals. Remarkable fact that during the war such a neutral (non-propagandistic) movie about animals was done. Above - newspaper clip from "Kazakhstanskaya Pravda" of 2 February 1945 that such a movie will be shown in cinemas of the ex-USSR during February 1945. The Black Tiger was 7 years old and he was taiken by Suleiman by chick from the nest. After completion of work on movie Suleiman Takimov and his Black Tiger succesfully were returned by plain back.
