"Chess Fever" Online
Among the chess-related videos I discovered at Google Video (mentioned here Saturday) was "Chess Fever" (Shakhmatnaya goryachka). The online version does not have English-language subtitles, but it's a silent film, after all, so it is fairly easy to understand by body language and gesture alone. We had an enjoyable showing of the short film at our club last year and several members have asked about it since. It's definitely worth seeing, especially with a group of chess players who will generate lots of fun commentary to make up for the lack of dialogue.
