Tolstoy Footage on Film

Few photographs exist of Leo Tolstoy and even less moving pictures. The video below shows Tolstoy as he had gotten up in years.

Most of footage was shot after he had published his excellent Tolstoy short stories of love, war and as a guide to his beloved peasants. On his grave Tolstoy asked to die as a peasant. At this time of the year he makes think of a skinny Santa Claus.
