New Didier Hanson acquisition: Ivan Mozzhukhin

Last week, I did a post on a postcard from the Russian Empire which Didier Hanson had sent me. It showed a scene from Nabat/The Alarm (1917), one of the last films Yevgeni Bauer made. Star of the film was Vera Karalli, who had an interesting career in Western Europe after the revolution. Didier also mailed me this scan of another very old and rare Russian film star postcard, picturing Ivan Mozzhukhin and his black poodle. Mozzhukhin was the biggest star among the Russian actors who went West after the Revolution. Today a post on EFSP with Russian postcards of Ivan Mozzhukhin, all from the collection of Didier Hanson.
