Potemkin Steps information
A woman yells at a tidy line of soldiers as they take aim. An officer commands: 'Fire!'. It takes many painful seconds for her to collapse and release a pram with a baby inside, which starts slowly tumbling down the steps – these very steps. All of that never happened during the real battleship Potemkin mutiny, but the genius film director Sergei Eisenstein made the world believe it did.
