The five-time Academy Award-winning film, Doctor Zhivago, was the first major Western movie to tackle the Russian Revolution that took place pre-World War II. This highly acclaimed classic was based on the controversial novel by Boris Pasternak, who wrote about the political turmoil amid the social upheaval taking place in early 1900's Russia. Due to the controversial storyline, the manuscript was not allowed publication in Russia and was therefore smuggled to Milan and published in 1957. Doctor Zhivago was filmed mostly in Spain where a remarkable Moscow movie set was built to reflect the book’s setting.
