Vyacheslav Tikhonov in the minds of millions of TV viewers of the USSR forever remained Stirlitz from "Seventeen Moments of Spring". Despite this, the actor himself constantly denied the resemblance to the Russian spy, whom he played brilliantly. Much closer to him was the role Andrey Bolkonsky … The intellectual, yearning for the wonderful ideals of a bygone era, has become one of the brightest actors in Soviet cinema.
The film "Seventeen Moments of Spring" had a difficult story: to shoot a film about intelligence was a risky business, and the party leadership argued for a long time about whether to release it. Andropov's opinion was decisive, after the picture was supported by Leonid Brezhnev. It was on his initiative that Tikhonov was awarded the title of People's Artist of the USSR. It is also interesting that one of the predictions about the fate of the actor is in an original way connected with this film: Vanga was sure that Vyacheslav Tikhonov would deserve fame thanks to his military uniform. In fact, this is what happened.
It is interesting that the path to the stage for Vyacheslav Tikhonov was long and thorny: in his youth he received the profession of a turner and worked at a factory during the war years, his parents predicted him to be an agronomist, and only his grandmother supported the desire to enter VGIK. True, according to the results of the exams, he did not become a student; he got on the stage much later, when the Soviet actor Boris Bibikov noticed him.
In the piggy bank of the actor were roles in such films as "White Bim Black Ear", which was nominated for "Oscar", "War and Peace", "Andersen. Life without love" and others. Filming in "War and Peace" lasted 4 years, and became a real test for Tikhonov. During one of the battle scenes, he was nearly wounded by a shell that exploded nearby. The character of Andrei Bolkonsky was very close to him; by his nature, Tikhonov was like a prince. But hands with tattoos had to be constantly hidden in gloves, fortunately, this was quite consistent with the spirit of the time and the era being recreated. Despite the most difficult work done by the actor, not all viewers accepted his hero, because of disappointment, Tikhonov even threatened to quit his job in the cinema.
Many roles performed by Vyacheslav Tikhonov have long been sold for quotations. Continuing the topic - 10 brilliant phrases by Vyacheslav Tikhonov from the film "Seventeen Moments of Spring".
Rogvolodovich, not Rurikovich: Why Prince Yaroslav the Wise did not love the Slavs and did not spare his brothers
In the official historiography, Yaroslav the Wise for a long time appeared to be an almost sinless ruler, the creator of legality in the Russian lands. In our time, he is already accused of sending several of his brothers to the next world in order to occupy the Kiev throne. But was it only the desire for power that drove Prince Yaroslav? If you look at the history of his family, then everything that happens is more like revenge … to his father. Bloody revenge for bloody atrocity
She did not promote the Germans, did not ruin Russia, did not leave the course of Peter: what is Anna Ioannovna accused of in vain?
Anna Ioannovna, niece of Peter the Great, went down in history with a terrible image. For what they just did not reproach the second ruling queen of Russia: for tyranny and ignorance, craving for luxury, indifference to state affairs and for the fact that the dominance of the Germans was in power. Anna Ioannovna had a lot of bad character, but the myth about her as an unsuccessful ruler who gave Russia to be torn apart by foreigners is very far from the real historical picture

None of the lifetime portraits of M. Yu. Lermontov gives a complete picture of what the poet looked like. Moreover, all the portraits seem to depict different people. And it's not just about appearance - facial expressions, posture, posture, look are so different, as if they characterize opposite psychological types. What is the mystery - in the versatility of Lermontov's nature or in the fact that the artists did not manage to discern something most important?
