Robinzon Kruzo (Russian: Робинзон Крузо) is a 1946 Soviet 3-D film.


The story of the film is based on the novel of Robinson Crusoe.


  • Pavel Kadochnikov - Robinson Crusoe
  • Yuri Lyubimov - Friday
  • Aleksandr Smiranin - Father of Robinson
  • E. Sanikidze - Mother of Robinson
  • V. Pavlenko - Liza


The film is the first glasses-free stereoscopic feature film,[2] the first Soviet 3-D feature film, and possibly the world's first 3-D feature film partially in color.[3] The film was restored by Konstantine Pipinashvili in 1968.[4][better source needed]

Sergei Eisenstein wrote about the film and its use of 3-D in 1948: "Will the cinema of the future be stereoscopic? Will tomorrow follow today?"[2] and further: "Mankind has for centuries been moving toward stereoscopic cinema... The bourgeois West is either indifferent or even hostilely ironical toward the problems of stereoscopic cinema.".[5]
