The dirty, no-good Reds are not at all happy about the portrayal of Cold War Russians in a new historical documentary starring Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett that's sweeping our country this weekend. "The Communist Party of St. Petersburg say the actors promote crude, anti-Soviet propaganda in their new film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; and have urged Russia's movie-going public to boycott the film and told Ford, 65, not to visit the country.The Communist Party's ideology committee in Russia's second largest city published an open letter declaring, 'Your work in this film is an insult to the Soviet and Russian people, who remember the difficult Fifties when our country was concluding its reconstruction after the Great War, but did not send merciless terrorists to the USA'."
"The letter said Russians are fond of many of Ford's other roles, but not this time. 'You have no future in Russia any more. Speaking plainly, it is better for you not to come here. You will be beaten and despised.'
"However, despite the protests, the film was released on Thursday on 808 screens in Russia - a record for a Hollywood film.
"The Communist Party has withered since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, but it remains the second largest party in the Duma, the Russian parliament." [ShowbizSpy]
