Cold war
When you have seen Gregory Peck and Ann Blyth at the helm,you'll know where James Cameron stole his famous Di Caprio/Winslet scene from .Besides ,the two heroes are a man of common birth and an aristocrat .There the comparison ends.

The first part may seem talky and is closer to comedy.But after the countess's abduction,adventure and drama reassert themselves .

The screenplay is rather derivative-particularly the love story- ,but the way the writers depict the Russians and the Americans is very interesting:the first ones despise those "Nouveaux Riches " ,they call them barbarians, they enslave their fellow men ,they are sadistic brutes .On the other hand ,the Yankees see their enemy as people from the past ,and they are ahead of their time ,for they already understood ,more than one hundred years ago ,that killing too many seals would endanger the ecological balance .
