It’s Moscow, 1953. Joseph Stalin suddenly drops dead. There ensues a frantic power struggle among Khrushchev, Malenkov, Beria, etc., to take the helm. This history becomes the basis for an audacious comedy from Armando Iannucci (“Veep”) that mixes palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce.

Cohen and stars James Cagney. This film, released in the darkest days of WWII, is famous for Cagney’s Oscar-winning performance and lavish rendition of favorite Cohen tunes such as “Over There,” “Give My Regards To Broadway,” “Mary” and, of course, “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”
