Victorious Destination, 1939, directed Leonid Amalrik, Dmitry Babichenko, Viktor Pokolnikov, Soyuzmultfilm.

A political cinema poster celebrating the achievements of the "Bolshevik Locomotive" -- Joseph Stalin's first three 5-Year Plans. The Film applauds the Party's destruction of millions of peasant farmers (kulaks) considered to have capitalist psychology, and trumpets achievements of mythical coal miner Alexei Stakhanov who exceeded all norms for productivity. Some of the original music, written specifically for the film to underscore the Stakhanov sequences, was not restorable. It was replaced with the popular song "Life Is Getting Better and Happier." The song was based on a line from a speech given by Stalin to extol the Stakhanov Movement.
