Alexander Popov (Russian: Александр Попов) is a 1949 biographical film about the life and work of Alexander Stepanovich Popov, who was the notable physicist and electrical engineer, inventor of radio communication.

In the process of scientific search the talent and the power of observation of Popov allowed him to complete a number of unique discoveries. The wireless telegraph invented by him was used for the first time in the heaviest conditions of the polar north, for rescuing people, which proved to be themselves on the ice floe in the open ocean...



In 1951 for this film both directors, both operators and main actors (Cherkasov, Skorobogatov, Freindlich, Borisov) received the Stalin Prize of 2nd degree.
