* Possibly the most epic example: Sergey Bondarchuk's 1968 ''WarAndPeace'' movie, featuring horses and entire ''military units'' (as well as a special "cinematographical cavalry corps") provided by the Soviet Ministry of Defense. But then, the Soviet Ministry of Defense was very fond of this trope in general, often providing soldiers for patriotic war films set during the Napoleonic Wars and the Russian Civil War.

* ThoseWackyNazis used thousands of soldiers, some diverted from fighting positions at considerable cost, as extras in the 1945 movie ''Kolberg'', about the unsuccessful (though it was successful in the film) resistance of the fortress-town of Kolberg against the French in 1807. By the time the movie came out there were few theatres left unbombed to watch it in, so its propaganda effect was minimal to say the least.

* Cuba's near distance from the US makes it the only socialist country (and only Carribean country) that makes US-style police dramas, which are co-produced since 1988 by the Film and Cinematic Laboratories of the Ministry of the Interior's National Revolutionary Police (termed as ''policiaco'' in Spanish). The first such drama, Cubavision's ''Dia y Noche'' (Day and Night), which debuted two years before ''Franchise/Law&Order'' in the US, was a LongRunner, running until the early 2000s.
