YMMV: Ivan the Terrible
- Foe Yay: Ivan and Vladimir Staritsky, particularly in the second movie.
- Ho Yay: Ivan and Fedor Basmanov the Cross-Dressing Oprichnik. Truth in Television, as rumours of a "sodomic liaison" between the two were spread by the tsar's enemies and sorta confirmed by Ivan himself.
- Author Appeal: Eisenstein himself was gay and working out a lot of his feelings through the film.
