Common Property (1919) on IMDb: Plot summary, synopsis, and more...
"Russian Paval Pavlovitch is married to an American woman when a decree is handed down that nationalizes women between the ages of seventeen and thirty-five as common property of the state for the use of its citizens. Passports are refused for Pavlovitch's family. His old servant takes out a certificate claiming Pavlovitch's wife Anna, and the son of the village priest claims Pavlovitch's daughter. Matters appear bleak for the Pavlovitch family, but a troop of American cavalry arrives and battles the Russian mob in the streets of Saratov. The edict is withdrawn and the Pavlovitch family is happy again."
This is the script for the 1919 American blockbaster "Common property" ... Part of a centennial propaganda of lies (with the exception of a few years during World War II). Four generations.
"The more monstrous a lie, the more willing it will be to believe" (c) one austrian painter
