The Demi-Paradise (1943) DVD5
Patriotic Russian engineer Ivan Kouznetsoff (Laurence Olivier) invents a special propeller for ice-breakers and in 1939 is sent by his government to England, just before the onset of the war, to supervise a private British shipping firm to build his revolutionary ice-breakers on ships they are sending to Russia. This way the Russian ships could pass the northern seas during winter.
His preconceived ideas about British peculiarities are at first confirmed and then, as he gets to know the people, broken down. The longer Ivan stays the more he comes to understand the humor, warmth, strength, and conviction of the British people, and the more they come to see him as a friend rather than merely a suspicious Russian.
