As suggested by Flash, I am copying here my "Eisenstein" entry:

“More extras were killed in the frenzied re-make of the storming of the Winter Palace in Sergei “Eisenstein's October, 1917 (film), than in the actual tame handover of power to Lenin's Communists.”

Mark Almond, Lecturer in Modern History at Oriel College, Oxford University (BBC website, 21 September 2005)

By some estimates, only 3 people died during the actual storming of the Winter Palace in October (now November) 1917 (vv)
