Six P.M. is the 1946 American release title of the 1944 Soviet film At 6 P.M. After the War (Russian: В 6 часов вечера после войны, also At six o'clock in the evening after the war) by Ivan Pyryev.[1]

The film earned the 1946 Stalin Prize of 2nd degree for the director, the composer Tikhon Khrennikov, screenwriter Viktor Gusev, and lead actors Marina Ladynina, Ivan Lyubeznov, and Yevgeny Samoylov.

The Russian film title alludes to the agreement of the Good Soldier Švejk and sapper Vodička on their way to the front, to meet at the pub "By the Chalice" (U Kalicha) "at 6 p.m. after the war". In the film, the two young lovers agree to meet at 6 p.m. after the war at the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge in Moscow. Since then the expression has become a Russian catch phrase.[2]
