Storm Over Asia (Potomok Chingis-Khana)
Storm Over Asia (original title Potomok Chingis-Khana ("The Heir to Genghis Khan")) is a Soviet 1928 silent B&W movie directed by Vsevolod Pudovkin (Minin and Pozharsky, The Death Ray (Luch smerti)). In 1920 British troops occupy Mongolia (this is a pure fictional event). Young Mongolian hunter Bair quarrels with deceitful British fur merchant, wounds him in a brawl and runs away from pursuing soldiers. Soon Bair joins a Red partisan unit but he is captured in a battle and sentenced to death. Suddenly a British missionary who is skilled in Mongolian language and history finds out that Bair wears an amulet that belongs to a direct heir to Genghis Khan. The British general plans to use Bair as a ruler of Mongolia under British protectorate. But Bair soon understands these plans and leads the uprising.
The following weapons were used in the film Storm Over Asia (Potomok Chingis-Khana):
