This is an interesting question will help us to answer such famous relatives, Luke, Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, five Marx brothers Wright and Van Goga.
Brothers Luke, Chris and Liam Hemsvorty
Not only that these three were born to put it mildly, not in the center of the world - in Melbourne, Australia, the southern city of millionaires on the planet. So parents and that did not stop after moving further away from civilization - at Phillip Island, an island south of Melbourne. Fortunately older brother Luke and Chris were average old enough to think of an independent life, but Liam Hemsworth while he studied only in 8th grade and anything like never dreamed. In such a situation, especially when you are the son of a teacher and social worker, somehow presumptuous threaten to rapid film career - especially in the career of a Hollywood star. However, they have threatened. Luke and Chris, as they say, a child drawn to the screen. Luc quite quickly went from being an unknown to teleaktera big TV star. Any Australian said about the series "Neighbours" - so he immediately think about Luke Hemsworth. Telekarera Chris started with a small hitch: he came to the casting in the TV series "Home and Away", but the role is not given to him. However, then they called back and asked to play another character - so Chris was 171-hardened serial on television. In general, a senior was a clever fellow, middle son this way and that, the junior did was stupid. Liam went to work in a team of repairmen, and the stele floors in homes, while older brothers did not take him by the scruff of the neck and not in the movie business perevolokli - on the set first "Home and Away" and then "neighbors". In 2009, Chris agent has hinted that in Hollywood a larger capacity. Chris packed up and gone, but the youngest, too, brought with him, and even to dwell in his flat - somebody has to look after the young star. From that moment on, Luke was the sole representative of the dynasty Hemsworth on Australian television (what seems to be quite happy with). And Chris Liam a few years become perhaps the most striking new to Los Angeles, and on the silver screen. "Star Trek," "A Perfect Getaway," "Thor", "The Avengers," "Snow White and the Huntsman" - a brief filmography Chris. Ahead - "Red Dawn," "Thor 2" and "Race", where Chris will play the pilot of "Formula 1" James Hunt. Portfolio Liam modest (romance "The Last Song", "The Hunger Games"). But in mid-August release of "The Expendables 2", where the 22-year-old Hemsvort divides the screen with these monsters of the genre ekshen, and all at once. By the way, "Thor" got a curious story that says that Liam can be grateful for the fraternal assistance. First, the sample was invited to the junior, but he did not get the role. And then I called Chris. "Of course, I first of all to his brother: damn, Liam, tell me what it was like everything goes, what works, what does not? - Recalls Chris. - He gave me a couple of practical advice, well, here I am Thor. " "Between you and me have always been rivalries - in the best sense of the word, - said, in turn, Liam. - We are brothers, and do something steeper Chris is always nice. And it's a great incentive in life that makes us both to move forward and achieve something. But most importantly - we are able to truly enjoy each other ».
The brothers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky
The complementarity of the two creative people - a great success for each of them. And saying that one head is good, but two - better is the best describes the case of the Strugatsky brothers. And their writers puzzle converged perfectly, despite the seemingly incompatible aspects. Firstly, it is quite a significant difference in age: Boris eight years younger. Secondly, the different temperaments: Arkady was more emotional depended on the mood, annoyed easily. Third, they had different areas of interest: Arkady profession - a military translator from English and Japanese, Boris - an astrophysicist. Nevertheless, these irregularities perfectly got used to each other. In an interview with "Izvestiya" Boris described the method of co-creation, "the story we always come up together - usually in the evening, while walking. The texts also wrote together, although at the very beginning and tried to write separately, but it was wasted, too slow, and somehow not interested. Usually one sat at the typewriter, the other immediately wandered around the room, and comes up with lyrics and discussed gradually - phrase by phrase, paragraph by paragraph, page by page. It was like a verbal editing - the most efficient way of working together. " And this despite the fact that the brothers lived in different cities - in Moscow, Arkady and Boris in Leningrad. To write a new chapter, one of them sat on the train and went to the collaborator. Of course, their books, you can see two different people: the cosmic reality, a purely scientific retreat - is Boris. Unexpected references to the Japanese language - is Arkady. But still they were a creative unit - ABS. In 1991, Arkady died. Boris issued after the death of his brother two separate books. According to him, in his life there was nothing harder than this is a single voyage: "I Peel thick log literature two-handed saw, but without a partner».
ATTENTION, the air!
Brothers: Wilbur and Orville Wright
Here he writes about the Wright brothers airplane inventors overlooked as amended tattered Soviet encyclopedia, "Wilbur (1867-1912) and Orville (1871-1948), American aircraft and pilots, aviation pioneers. The world's first 12.17.1903 flew duration of 59 on the plane they built with an internal combustion engine. " Textbook story, but stop: the plane they were single. And in the air was the first to someone one. Who was it? As they shared the right to become the first pilot? Wilbur and Orville were born in the family of Bishop Milton Wright, and thoughts of children from religious families often turned to high. So, there is a beautiful legend that somehow my father gave his sons a half-meter toy aircraft, one of the prototypes of future aircraft. Children were playing with it until it broke, and then had built a new one. Thus it was laid the solid foundation to their future passion. That passion, neither Wilbur nor Orville not studied ourselves to a higher education diploma. To earn more, they founded the first printing, then a bicycle shop, shop, and a little later veloproizvodstvo own. And all this time in their heads flew child model with a motor with an elastic band. By the end of the century the brothers been reading professional literature, we had seen in the developments in the field of aviation and come to grips with the creation of the aircraft, and the main driving force in this tandem historians call Wilber. After the first models and full-size units, after a series of successful experiments and failures it is time to make a revolution - show the first human flight in a managed prasamolete combustion engine. Appointed Day - December 14, 1903. Who will fly? There was much debate - brothers threw a coin. Won Wilber (destiny is not blind). However, the flight was a failure (or still blind?) - The airplane had been in the air for 3 seconds, then crashed. A second attempt was made on December 17 after a small repair. Piloted by Orville is now, and in fact he was the first who flew (duration - 12 seconds, the length - 37 m). Then I climbed into the cockpit Wilber (53 m), and then again, Orville (61 m). And the same flight, which lasted 59 seconds, which is mentioned in the encyclopedia, was the fourth day. Pilot - Wilber, range - 260 m. However, the glory of the brothers still strictly divided in half.
Brothers: Leonard, Adolf, Julius, Milton and Herbert Marx
We are all familiar clown mask - glasses with thick eyebrows, which fastened the nose with a mustache - it's almost an exact portrait of Julius "Groucho" Marx, one of the three Marx Brothers, perhaps the most famous fellow comedians in film history. Actually, there were five brothers, that's just not all famous. The boys in the family of emigrants who settled in New York, were born quite regularly. In 1887 - Leonard (stage name - Chico), in 1888 - Adolf (Garp), in 1890 - Julius (Groucho), in 1892 - Milton (gamma), in 1901 - Herbert (Zeppo) . All five sing and play musical instruments began before speaking. Already in the early 1900s, one of the guys played in vaudeville, someone was singing in a group The Six Mascots, together gradually passed from the genre of "music with jokes" to the genre of "jokes to the music." The five brothers were only in 1915 when Zeppo grew up and joined the native comic troupe and Gamma has not yet gone to serve, permanently leaving the scene: After the army, he started his business, and later became a theatrical agent. In 1920 the show four Marx Brothers became one of the most popular American theater pieces, and it seems logical that in the 30s moved to the silver screen comedians, having won no less glory than Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton. That's just as they are not distributed equally. Junior, Zeppo, life was the most daring of all the merry brothers and older on stage gave him the role of a simpleton, just the main partner of clowns. He could replace any of the brothers in every episode, but he always remained in the background. Then Groucho had the idea that a talented Zeppo - once. And the younger Marx simply removed from the company. Envy, jealousy, resentment ... a lot of words you can pick up to more or less correctly describe the feelings Herbert after a resignation, but it is curious that the fraternal ties proved stronger. One would think: to get away from all of them away and do their own thing, especially since Herbert was a talented engineer and inventor (for example, he owned a patent wristwatches, measuring heart rate). But there is - along with Milton Herbert creates a theatrical agency and continues to work with his brothers already as a promoter. Although Marx brothers remained in the history of cinema rather as a trio, many have noticed that no one could adequately replace Zeppo, even in minor roles, which he battered.
DIFFICULT be brothers
Brothers Vincent and Theodorus van Goga
In 1990, "Portrait of Dr. Gachet" by Vincent Van Gogh hand went under the hammer at Christie's auction for $ 82, 5 million, and over one and a half decades remained the most expensive painting in the world. During the life of the Van Gogh could be sold for serious money is only one painting - "The Red Vineyard" (400 francs, four monthly salaries of French postman those times), and it happened in the year of death of the artist. But Vincent Van Gogh did, nothing else, in fact, are not engaged in since the beginning of 1880 to 1890. I feed and clothe his brother. Theodorus (or simply Theo) van Gogh was four years younger than my entire adult life and not to bow before the genius brother, but felt for him the warmest feelings. With 15 years Theo began working in a family office that sells paintings, and by the age of 23 has already been successful as one would say now, an art dealer. It supported the idea of Theo Vincent devote himself to art, and then advised him to quit "peasant art" (that Impressionism - is another matter!) And persuaded him to move to Paris, the capital of modern art. And it was with his brother Theo concluded an agreement: in exchange for the paintings of Vincent, Theo paid 220 francs a month and provides its brushes, paints and canvas. Such a state of affairs would be envied by any Rembrandt: in the face of his brother Vincent was and stable source of income, and personal agent on the art market, and a friend with whom you can share all your thoughts (archival Theo survived more than 800 letters of Vincent - an inexhaustible source of information for biographer, art, and other curious). The difficulty of these relations was to ensure that supported them still Theo and Vincent them, in fact, quite selfishly enjoyed. After all, he shot himself in, according to his biographers, in a fit of madness not. Theo got married, had a baby, and Vincent's tormented by the thought that their productive cooperation with my brother came to an end. After attempting suicide, Van Gogh lived for two days. He died in the arms of his brother. Theo survived Vincent by only six months. He was 33.
