It was mentioned there that no films with Bregvadze exist. I also haven't heard of any full film ballets featuring him, however, you can see a recording of him dancing in "THE GLORY OF THE KIROV" videofilm (1995):
Viennese Waltz by Yakobson: Kurgapkina, Bregvadze (1960)

i've recently gotten this photo of B.Y. Bregvadze and (probably) Kaleria Fedicheva (the handwritten caption seems wrong - one colleague very familiar with Shelest's career says Shelest only ever danced Cleopatra, and that only once - and not the Veronika role shown here) in what passed for Fokine's EGYPTIAN NIGHTS in the soviet era - the production was apparently billed as being 'Lopukhov after Fokine'.
This photo, 8x10" (not a postcard) would seem to have been from a publisher's archive, as it includes retouching strokes of brush and ink.
it is undated.
also included here is a smaller photo of B.Y.B. and Emma Vladimirovna Minchyenok (who later? married B.Y.B). they are shown as Ferhad and Shirin in LEGEND OF LOVE (by Grigorovich).
B.Y.B. is prominent in the recently shown GEORGIANS AT THE MARYINSKY (Dance on Camera, 2007) where he speaks about his fellow Georgian V. M. Chabukiani - the costumes for LEGEND are by Virisiladze, another Georgian who worked at the Maryinksy to some acclaim and who is featured in the Georgians/Maryinsky film.
p.s. the link given in my initial posting is no longer active.
