The script was ready in February 1942 and Eisenstein waited eighteen months for permission to shoot. Eisenstein made drawings of the entire film—every picture, every shot, every sequence. The visual solution towards which he strove would be a complete rupture with his previous experience. He had a mental image of El Greco with the lighting effects of German Expressionist film. After the victory at Stalingrad he received Stalin’s verdict in writing: “Eisenstein has managed to portray Ivan the Terrible as a progressive power of his time. This subject is to go into production as soon as possible.”
