Who could play Ivan the Terrible in the film & quot; Ivan Vasilyevich changes his profession & quot;
Initially, the script "Ivan Vasilyevich is changing his profession" was written under Yuri Nikulin. It was Leonid Gaidai who saw him in the role of Tsar Ivan the Terrible and the house manager Bunshi. But Nikulin, having read the script, refused the role. Yuri Vladimirovich was scared that this film would fall "on the shelf." On the eve of the shooting, Gaidai was left without a leading actor. And then he began to try the best actors of the country.
Unfortunately, I have access to the archives of Mosfilm, where albums with photo samples are stored. But some shots were found
For example, here is a photo test of Evgeny Lebedev for the role of the king
and his substitution
And this is a sample of George Vitsin - house manager Ivan Vasilyevich Bunsha and Tsar Ivan Vasilyevich the Terrible
But the most successful samples were with Evgeny Evstigneev.
and Gaidai wanted to stop at that
But a misunderstanding happened.Gaidai Evstigneev said a replica from the script "When you speak, I have a feeling that you are delirious." But Evstigneev was not yet familiar with the script, and he accepted this phrase in his own name. In general, as a result, Evstigneev left, and Gaidai was again left without an actor.
And then he was offered to try Yuri Yakovlev, with whom the director had not worked before. Gaidai liked the samples, and in Yuri Yakovlev it became almost the brightest role in the movie
Well, about the results of yesterday's guessing.
Not everyone guessed Ivan Vasilyevich Bunshu in this photo of George Vitsin. There were many very interesting options. And Rasputin, and Raskolnikov, and Myshkin. Gadfly, Vorobyaninov, Father Fedor, Panteley Melikhov. And a whole bunch of options. The answer Vitsin was very popular. Either people do not read anything except the headline, or it is such a sense of humor.
Well, the first one gave the correct answerdmbrine. He sent 100 tokens. Congratulations to the winner!
