Perhaps, there will not be a person among the Soviet viewers who would not know the story of a boy carved from a tree. It is rightfully considered a cult children's fairy tale. In the center of our article is the film "Pinocchio": actors, characters played and many other interesting facts.
Similarities and differences with the book
The transfer of the story of Pope Carlo and his carved “brainchild” is based on the book by Alexei Tolstoy “The Golden Key”. The idea was to film a popular work, but screenwriter Inna Vetkina still made her own adjustments. They turned out to be insignificant and did not affect the general meaning. History buffs may find a few inconsistencies. For example, the talking knee hits Papa Carlo on the head, and in the movie “The Adventures of Pinocchio” due to ethical considerations, the latter was hit on the leg. But the main character himself is shown more modest - in the book original, Pinocchio becomes a mischievous person long before the work on him was completed. So, some episodes were not shown at all: the scene of penetration into the tavern, payment of the bill for lunch, Pinocchio's arrest.
Human weaknesses of woodthe doll is no stranger
In the production of the picture, the search for the performers of the main roles was of key importance. For filming, the Belarusian film studio allocated pavilions where war films had previously been shot, so we can say that the production of children's Pinocchio became a turning point in its history. Actors were mainly searched for from Belarus. The casting took a long time. Director Leonid Nechaev tried several boys with a "cute" appearance, who could fit the main character, but did not dare to choose someone. Until I accidentally met 9-year-old Dmitry Iosifov at the rink. It was love at first sight. For participation in the film “The Adventures of Pinocchio”, the young actor received an “adult” fee of 100 rubles per month.
The performer of the role of Malvina was found by chance in a similar way. Leonid Nechaev's assistant met Tatyana Protsenko at the entrance of the house and invited her to try. Protsenko was a Muscovite.
Ambitious representatives of the animal world
Throughout the year, the shooting of “Pinocchio” lasted; During this time, the film was overgrown with numerous funny facts. The director selected the actress for the image of the turtle Tortila, who promised to be very bright and spectacular. The proposal was sent to Ranevskaya, but the ambitious Faina Georgievna agreed, on the condition that the shooting would take place in Moscow. Since this option was not envisaged, her candidacy had to be abandoned.
The next contender was Rina Zelenaya. The actress agreed without hesitation. However, when it came to voice actingsongs of Tortila, Rina refused to perform the second verse, because age was mentioned there. She probably did not want to draw parallels with herself. As a result, instead of a verse, a musical loss sounds.
Veterans and youths
It would be more correct to say that each character in the picture plays a role. Difficulties in finding minor images did not bypass the preparatory process of "Pinocchio". The film's cast includes heavy artillery in the form of stars, some of whom were famous at the time of filming. So, the role of the old organ grinder was given to the Ukrainian artist Nikolai Grinko. Playing the role of Papa Carlo was a great opportunity for him to reincarnate, to play something new, since most of his previous images were associated with war and peasant themes.
Vladimir Etush brilliantly played the main villain, Doctor of Puppet Sciences Karabas-Barabas.
A carpenter by profession and a friend of Papa Carlo, in the book Giuseppe, nicknamed Blue Nose, is presented as an episodic character appearing in the first chapters. In the film, he appears throughout the development of the plot. He was played by Yuri Katin-Yartsev, a talented theater and film actor who worked as a teacher for many years. Not having time to get an education at the Shchukin school, he goes to the front, where the war goes on until the very end. Returning, he becomes a regular actor in the troupe of the theater on Malaya Bronnaya. Active filming takes place when he turns 50 years old. But it was Pinocchio that brought real popularity.
Actors include young performers who are notwent to the acting profession in the future. Roman Stolkarts, who played Pierrot, was no longer filmed. In the late 80s, he trained as a pediatrician, and soon moved abroad. The role of Artemon also became the only one in his career for Thomas Augustinas. He subsequently moved to Canada, where he developed his own business. Grigory Svetlorusov (Harlequin) entered the higher school of the KGB and devoted himself to intelligence activities. This information is difficult to confirm with official sources, because it exists as one of the versions of the actor's future fate.
Love beyond the screen
The director invited Rolan Bykov to the image of the cat Basilio. And he gladly agreed. Interest in his person was caused by the fact that Rolan Bykov and Elena Sanaeva, a partner on the set (played the fox Alice), were officially married at the time of the production of Pinocchio. It was their first collaboration. Later, the couple played in common films more than once (“Duck Village”, “Scarecrow”, “Wedding Gift”), and lived together until the death of Rolan Bykov in 1998.
Image in the frame, natural talent
Another interesting character that cannot be ignored is Duremar, a dealer in medicinal leeches from Pinocchio. The actor who embodied this comedic and funny image, Vladimir Basov, was already a famous filmmaker by the time of filming. For participation in the war, he received several state awards, and upon his return he entered VGIK. Vladimir arranges his personal life, becomes the director of many films. According to critics, Basov hadgreat talent for transformation. From childhood, music succumbed to him, it was not for nothing that he sang so often in his paintings with his hoarse voice, beloved by the public. In each role, he used expressive facial expressions, playing mostly negative characters. All of them turned out to be characteristic and attractive, like Duremar from Pinocchio. The actor starred in many films, played on the stage. As a director, he directed over 20 films.
The best fairy tale for children
It is surprising and at the same time justified that this film has been considered a cult film for decades. It is especially pleasant that it was filmed in our country. Several generations have grown up on Pinocchio. What do you remember about the story of the wooden hero? A lot of funny moments, phrases and expressions that have become winged, a number of funny screen images recreated by wonderful Soviet artists, tricks and scenery, costumes and makeup, and, of course, amazing musical accompaniment - these are the main components of Pinocchio's success. The 1975 film will be a great example for today's young viewers!
