Michel Strogoff is a 1956 historical adventure film directed by Carmine Gallone and starring Curd Jürgens. It is based on 1876 novel of the same title by Jules Verne. Made as a co-production between several European nations, it was shot at the Kosutnjak Studios in Belgrade using CinemaScope.. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Léon Barsacq and Vlastimir Gavrik. Jürgens also appeared in a 1961 follow-up The Triumph of Michael Strogoff.


In the nineteenth century Imperial Russian forces are battling against Tartar forces at the city of Irkutsk. Tsar Alexander II sends Michel Strogoff as a courier to try and reach the besieged city, and he travels disguised as a merchant along with Nadia and two war correspondents.



It was the most popular movie of the year in France.[1] An estimated seven million spectators passed through the box office to see it in the country.[2]
