Harvey and Alice Richards made a film in the Soviet Union (USSR) in 1961 focusing on women and children in a socialist society: A Visit to the Soviet Union, Part 1: Women of Russia (27 min.), and Part 2: Far From Moscow (20 min.). I accompanied them, at age 17, to help with the batteries and heavy equipment. It was my first airplane ride and a remarkable experience. We visited Moscow, Sochi on the Black Sea coast, Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and Irkutsk in Siberia. Harvey and Alice’ films are simple accounts of social services and life styles of women and children in the Soviet Union in 1961.
