3 February 1967 came the romantic comedy Eldar Ryazanov "Beware of the Car". I suggest you learn 10 interesting facts about the shooting this masterpiece of Soviet cinema.
This story reminds fantastic scenario: a humble and quiet theater actor amateur with a touching Detochkin name actually is irreconcilable fighter with bribery and other criminals, and he is fighting for the good of children. While another actor of the same theater, that sort of activity is necessary to investigate the crimes of our "Robin Hood", he is presented as a cunning, crafty and elusive almost attacker. This original script was written by a talented duo of Soviet cinema - Eldar Ryazanov and Emil Braginsky ("Office Romance", "Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!" And other blockbusters) based on the folk legend of the noble Theft Auto. Just at the time the legend was considered a true story, and Eldar Ryazanov has spent some time on the fruitless search for a prototype Detochkin - but in reality, this character does not exist ...
Originally planned for the role Detochkin Yuri Nikulin, but he, along with the circus went on tour to South Africa by nearly six months. Then auditioned Oleg Yefremov, but the role eventually gave Innocent Smoktunovsky and Efremov played militiaman Maxim Podberezovikova. During the approval of candidates for the role in the film, Smoktunovskij undergoing treatment for tuberculosis eye, which he had to stop for the shooting, and then continue after graduation. The disease was very serious: in the treatment took nearly two years.
It is noteworthy that the two leading men - and Smoktunovskij, and Ephraim were comedians. Therefore their images turned out quite serious and even dramatic and comedy "Beware of the car!" Turned into a tragicomedy.
But popular and beloved comedians Soviet Andrei Mironov, Anatoly Papanov very easily and conveniently fit into the concept of the film, also providing the entire film crew cheerful workflow endless improvisation and sparkling humor. The work of Andrei Mironov as an "employee trade" by critics as one of his most successful.
A quote character Papanova firmly established in the life of Soviet society and relevant, the way to this day, for example: "You posodyut, and you do not steal!" And others.
Most of the scenes of the film shot on location and what is interesting in the beginning of the movie voiceover author argues that it is not known which city events occur. However, the conversation in the pub scene, Detochkin utters a phrase that after the sale of one of the stolen cars, he returned to Moscow .... Consequently, the events of the film unfold is still in Moscow.
Volga "GAZ-21", which Detochkin gone pursuit, owned by Mosfilm. Subsequently, this car rented in several movies. Also, the car in some way made famous by the famous episode with Papanova "taxi to Dubrovka" (where the car repainted) in the movie "The Diamond Arm". The same machine acted as a taxi hero of Ephraim in the movie "Three Poplars at Plyushchikha».
Continuing the theme of the pursuit of Detochkin: waltz, sounding during the persecution policeman "Elusive Avengers", uses a musical phrase from the song «Padam ... Padam ...». This melody composer Andrei Petrov - one of the most famous and recognizable in the world of film music. His repertoire includes Sergei Nikitin have written poems of Yevgeny Yevtushenko song "Mr. Glass", using the motif of the waltz from the film "Beware of the Car».
Back in amateur theater: there Smoktunovsky character plays the role of Hamlet. Interestingly, at the time the films have already Smoktunovsky was brilliantly performed the role in the film "Hamlet" was shown in 1964.
Especially for shooting at the insistence of Innocent Smoktunovskij Ryazanov passed on a driver's license. Not really realistic picture story director tried to make up for maximum reliability shooting process: all the tricks were performed without stunt trick photography, that is, at full speed stunt slipped under the truck-racing pipe carrier, flew in the fast traveling trailer and threw the car into a ditch.
To play the role of girlfriend Detochkin - Luba, her singer Olga Aroseva had to actually get the right driver trolley and then drive a real trolley during the filming.
Maybe it was a serious and responsible approach to making films in conjunction with high-class cast and an original script and was the basis, which in the Soviet film industry were truly works of genius.
