We present our analysis of the theory constructed in 1965 by Ogievetsky and Polubarinov (OP) -- the first ever theory of interacting massive gravitons. Its mass term is adjusted in such a way that the non-linear field equations imply as a consequence the linear Hilbert-Lorentz condition, which restricts the spin of states in the theory. Strikingly, for special parameter values this theory coincides with one of the "ghost-free" massive gravity models rediscovered only in 2010. For generic… Expand
