Same as the others, Soviet film also kept a fairly low profile for many, many months after Molotov-Ribbentrop and all through the Eastern European invasions and occupations.

Irony of ironies, according to Matthew Barton, Artkino & The Stanley Theatre, NY were featuring They Only Wanted Peace, a bald-faced Soviet attempt to put a smiley face on Molotov-Ribbentrop, on the very day the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union (and Poland and Finland… but who's counting.)

The American attitude sea-change the Nazis began was finished by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor. Everybody was back in business and Stinson Trading Company branched right out into book distribution:

“The Most Popular Songs from the Soviet Union
Published by: The Stinson Trading Company
27 Union Square West (Cor. 16th Street)
New York, N.Y.
Telephone Grammercy 7-2353
Copyright, 1942”


Heck, anybody could get a job:

“AMUSEMENT MACHINES
News Notes
Johnny (Scat) Davis has signed to record for the Okeh label. . . The Almanac Singers have done likewise with Decca...”
[Billboard, 14 Feb 1942, p.61]
