The original Russian title of The Sword and the Dragon was Ilya Muromets. Boris Andreyev plays the title character, a legendary Russian hero of the Middle Ages. Fact and fantasy meld copacetically as Muromets does battle not only with human adversaries but with three-headed, fire-breathing dragons and other such obstacles. Special effects in Soviet films of the 1950s generally seem to be of the "Howdy Doody" school; not so the effects in Sword and the Dragon, which retain their razzle and dazzle
