Part of Film series The Method on Film
 
The Queen of Spades (1916)

Dir. Yakov Protazanov
63min
With Tamara Duvan, Ivan Mozzhukhin, Vera Orlova

 

This enchanting and enchanted story features sophisticated filmmaking techniques in its lively adaptation of Alexander Pushkin’s novella (and Pytor Tchaikovsky’s subsequent opera). Featuring Orlova, a graduate of the Moscow Art Theatre school, The Queen of Spades offers viewers an exemplar of popular acting in Russia during the rise of Konstantin Stanislavski, the father of The Method.

 
The Queen of Spades (1910)

Dir. Pyotr Chardynin
16min
With Pavel Biryukov, Aleksandra Goncharova, Antonina Pozharskaya

 

In this short film version of the same Pushkin story, which was also the basis for a successful opera by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, viewers can see the highly theatrical style of acting that predated the Method and its precursors.
