Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 'War and Peace' filming problems were staggerin PAGE 7 Tolstoy's War and currently running Saturday nights on CBC-TV, presented a monumental handicap to the Russian film-makers. The phy- sical difficulty involved in transposing a giant of a novel into a giant of a movie was, at times, almost insurmountable. Yet, over a period of five years and at a cost of over one hun- dred million dollars the impos- sible was accomplished. The initial cost, the construc- tion of sets, the casting, the cos- tuming, even the gathering of props, set recoids that stagger the imagination. The physical direction of the army-sized cast had to be pie-planned and plot- ted in the manner of a full- scale war.

To all this was added the necessity for interweaving one of the world's great love stor- ies into the action on the bat- tlefield, the personal direction of thirty of Russia's leading stage and screen stars, and the massive job of dubbing voices and background sounds into a variety of languages for world- wide distribution. Probably no film production in history has faced so many difficulties, and few have turn- ed out an end product of such magnificence, such overwhelm- ing proportions.
