** {{Justified}} by Russian being a very slowly changing language. Aside from somewhat different style and changing vocabulary, the 16th century Russian is entirely understandable for the modern speaker and vice versa, unlike, say, the [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe 16th century]] ''[[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe English]]''.[[note]]TheBard, in fact, ''was'' an Ivan The Terrible's contemporary, and modern editions of Shakesperean plays sometimes go so far as to include ''translations'' from the English of the time.[[/note]]

** Granted, all that can be handwaved as [[AllJustADream Shurik's subconsciousness]] basically painting him a ThemeParkVersion of IvanTheTerrible's Russia.

Added DiffLines:

* SerialSpouse: Shurik's wife claims to have gotten divorced three or four times already. While the whole thing ends up as AllJustADream, it's implied that it's still true.

*** He did listen to some of Vysotsky's songs while Shurik was out buying transistors. Given Vysotsky's style he may have heard it there. He also seemed to like the songs, so he may have quoted them.

** TruthInTelevision: RealLife Ivan IV ''did'' view public executions as a form of entertainment [[ValuesDissonance as were a lot of his contemporaries]]. What's interesting, however, is that this notion was much less widespread in Russia than in the Western Europe, which was one of the reasons of his grisly reputation with his subjects.
** In fact, some of the Tsar's lines in this dialogue were lifted verbatim from historical documents.



* DeletedScene: Several scenes were removed from the final product, but apparently, someone on Mosfilm made a 8-mm short-length silent movie roll featuring said cutouts, named ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFCRE1Mxnog The Black Gloves]]'', focusing on Miroslavskiy's misfortunes, not to mention his later fate that happened roughly at the same time Ivan the Terrible was sent back to his time.

Added DiffLines:

* RomanAClef: Carp Yakin the director is long speculated to be a rather thinly veiled parody of the former Mosfilm boss Ivan Pyryev. A top-notch director himself, he was a somewhat vain and arrogant man, and was infamous for his dictatorial style. Moreover, while both were the undisputed masters of the comedy, Gaidai's irreverent style often clashed with Pyryev's straitlaced sensibilities.[[note]]He came from a long lineage of Siberian Old Believers, a very uptight bunch.[[/note]]

* PhlebotinumBreakdown: one of the palace guards throws a halberd (which Shurik [[DidntDoTheResearch calls a bardiche]]) at the time machine and it breaks down, trapping Ivan the Terrible in the twentieth century and Bunsha and Miloslavsky in the sixteenth.
