From Russia with Love

Eight years before being hired on a new television news program named '60 Minutes' Mike Wallace narrated this Russian fairy tale. Mike Wallace was born in Massachusetts of Russian immigrants, and in 1960, with the 'cold war' raging between the Soviet Union and the U.S. he narrated this Russian fantasy fairy tale. 1960 was the same year that Nikita Khrushchev, head of the Soviet Union Communist Party allegedly pounded the speakers desk with his shoe at the United Nations and proclaimed to the United States, 'We will bury You'. In 1960 my dad was preaching at a church in Meadville, Pennsylvania and at 9pm every Wednesday night as I lay in my bed getting ready to sleep the loud sirens would wail for what seemed like an eternity as the city tested their air-raid sirens that would be used in the event of a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union, and I always wondered what if . . . what if the Communists decided to attack on a Wednesday evening at 9pm and the siren test was not a test but the 'real thing?' I never saw this Russian fantasy fairy tale back in 1960, but if I had it might have tempered my great fear of the Russian people, who must have enjoyed this tale of kings and damsels in distress and mighty warriors just as much as I would these many years later as I first watched this fairy tale. Time surely brings perspective to our perceptions of good and evil, just as the old warrior in this tale discovers as he battles the young fighter who would kill him if he could. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with lots of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy a tale from long ago and far away.
