Feeling that the 1925 film did not mirror the current thought of the Soviet, a written prologue was added together with a musical score. Because of the difference in projection speeds between silent and sound films, it was necessary to "step-print" the silent film so that the movement would flow smoothly and would follow the music. As a result, the sound version is longer than the original and yet, it does not contain all of the footage that Eisenstein used in the original film.
