Eisenstein In Las Vegas

Zhdanov: You are overly fascinated by shadows, Comrade. And the beard, the beard--so much head-raising to show off the beard.

: I confess to the shadows. Is this an ideological failing, Comrade?

: No. It distracts from the action, that's all. Too much psychologism.

: I see. But the beard and the head-raising--do they have to go too, Comrade?
