Life Guards", 1709
Film about Peter the Great, September 11, 2005.
History of the regt
An American studio is making series of films about famous monarchs in history, and our club was invited for picture-taking in the film about Tsar Peter.
As is known, reenactors and cinema-men have different views on authenticity shown in a movie. So guardsmen, their uniforms, weapons and drill was authentic according to our standards, while everything else was good enough per 'movie' standards. Looking forward to seeing what comes out on TV!
