History of creation
Even before filming, controversy ensued around the film's script. In the article "Peter I" in the cinema" (1937), A. Tolstoy wrote: Many ... full-time cinema theorists brought down the most contradictory demands on us. The wobbling, hysterical Peter, whom they imposed on us, did not coincide with our plans in any way ... We are far from the idea of reviving the trivial textbook image of the "crowned carpenter", but we do not want in our picture to belittle the significance of the personality of a person who has risen above his era ... the end is the personal intervention of Stalin, who approved the concept of the film. At first, it was supposed to shoot not two, but three series of the film and attract foreign actors. Then these plans were abandoned. Filming of the first series of the film was completed in 1937, the second - in 1938.
