The Cigarette Girl from Mosselprom (Russian: Папиросница от Моссельпрома, translit. Papirosnitsa ot Mosselproma)) is a 1924 Soviet silent comedy film directed by Yuri Zhelyabuzhsky and starring Igor Ilyinsky.

Plot[edit]

As she works in her tedious office job, Maria Ivanovna dreams about being married, and she has particular hopes that her co-worker Nikodim Mityushin (Igor Ilyinsky) will take an interest in her. Nikodim, though, is in love with Zina (Yuliya Solntseva), who sells cigarettes on the sidewalk, and he frequently buys cigarettes from her even though he does not smoke. One day, a film crew uses Zina as an extra in an outdoor scene, and the cameraman, Latugin (Nikolai Tseretelli), falls in love with her. Latugin soon arranges an acting job for Zina. To complicate matters further, Zina has yet another admirer in Oliver MacBride, an American businessman who is visiting Moscow.
