Three years before Photoshop 1.0, USSR was already retouching photos with advanced technology.
Pretty cool eh?

I think this should be taken with a grain of salt ... the Soviet regieme was known for its exagerrations and omissions.
These replacements seem too perfect for me to have been achieved by pressing a few keys on the keyboard ... heck it takes more than this even today and I somehow doubt that the Russians discovered and hence forgot some super photo editing software. I'm quite sure that the process of removing those stripes from the photo was a considerably longer process than the one shown in the video.
Nah, for Trotsky, et. al., it was old school ink and brush, but a funny film.
