The legend of Russian cinema and theater Oleg Pavlovich Tabakov was a real favorite of the audience. The reason for this was the absolutely incredible charm inherent in this brilliant actor. There was something of a cat in him - soft, fluffy, self-sufficient and infinitely comfortable, thanks to which all his characters literally lived in the frame and were interesting, even without doing anything.
Such films with Oleg Tabakov as “Burn, burn, my star”, “A few days from the life of I. I. Oblomov", "D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers", "Seventeen Moments of Spring" and many others, entered the golden fund of Soviet cinema. And the cat Matroskin from Prostokvashino, Tabakov's famous screen avatar, deserves a separate discussion.
A little over a year ago, Oleg Pavlovich passed away … And today we will remember the best films with the participation of this outstanding actor and person.
The first of the films with Tabakov, which I would like to talk about, was the comedy melodrama "Noisy Day", which was released on the screens of the country in 1960. In this picture, which has several main characters at once, the twenty-five-year-old aspiring actor played the role of the brightest, noisiest and most memorable of them.
The youngest son of an ordinary Moscow family, Oleg Savin, whose image was embodied by Tabakov, is a rushing dreamer schoolboy. He is a real whirlwind and emotion. With eyes burning with inspiration, he composes his passionate poems right on the run, spins like a top and creates a real whirlpool around him. The main conflict of the hero Oleg Tabakov lies in the clash of the worldviews of fathers and children, who have completely different life values. And the impetus for the explosion of emotions of the youngest indefatigable son of the Savin family was an unexpected discovery, which consists in the fact that his parents prefer a middle-class sideboard to a read book.
In his role, young Oleg Tabakov is simply incredible. It is on his acting talent, as if on an unrestrained locomotive, that this entire film rests.
Shine, shine, my star
The next among the films with Tabakov, deserving special mention, is the famous picture of 1969 "Shine, shine, my star." In this tape, the actor played the role of the main character Vladimir with an unusual surname Iskremas, which is an abbreviation for "art for the revolutionary masses."
Tabakov's hero is a self-taught and theater enthusiast who tries to keep it amid the chaos of the new time, scorched by the civil war. He tries at all costs to bring light to people, proving that inside each of us, no matter how hard it is for him, there lives an insatiable craving for light and beauty, which is what the theater is.
Iskremas is a true liberator of the oppressed people, but will he endure all hardships and trials in order to achieve his goal?..
Seventeen Moments of Spring
One of the most famous films with Tabakov is the serial television film "Seventeen Moments of Spring", which became a cult almost immediately after its premiere in August 1973. The popularity of this unforgettable picture was so great among the audience that during its display the streets were empty and crime was decreasing. Three months after the premiere, the film was re-aired on television, which was the only such case in history.
It is probably not worth retelling the plot of this picture - it is familiar to several generations of our compatriots. Yes, and how to convey that amazing game of all the actors without exception, which you can only see and feel. In "Seventeen Moments of Spring" Oleg Tabakov played the role of the chief of foreign intelligence of the security service and SS Brigadeführer W alter Friedrich Schellenberg, turning out to be so similar to his real hero that he subsequently received a letter of thanks from Germany from his niece.
D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers
This picture is also in the collection of the golden fund of Soviet cinema. And if "Seventeen Moments of Spring" was intended mainly for an adult audience, then the film "D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers" in 1978, based on the novel of the same name by A. Dumas, became a real sensation for viewers of all ages. As in those years, and today, absolutely everything attracts in this picture, from the brilliant cast to the magnificent musical accompaniment, which is still relevant today.
Oleg Tabakov's hero this time was King Louis XIII, absolutely incredible and striking in his charm. It is noteworthy that the actor himself was much older than his character. Nevertheless, the king played by Tabakov, as well as his brilliant dialogues, became a real decoration of this legendary musical TV movie.
A few days in the life of I. I. Oblomov
The next outstanding work from among the films with Tabakov was the film directed by Nikita Mikhalkov "A Few Days in the Life of I. I. Oblomov", released in 1979.
This tape brilliantly reflects the very noble era of Russia in the middle of the 19th century - the rustling of dresses, walks in the garden, the desire for an impeccable reputation, patriotism and, as the tip of this iceberg, "Oblomovism" in the face of its main representative Ilya IlyichOblomov, the owner of a small estate, who spends all his time in idleness, sleep and idleness, brilliantly performed by Oleg Tabakov, who so accurately and brilliantly reflected the entire drama and philosophy of his hero that even imagining any other actor in this role is completely ridiculous.
The Man from Boulevard des Capucines
Another special film starring Oleg Tabakov is the 1987 comedy, which was the last for the great actor Andrei Mironov, who played the main role of the noble Mr. Fest, the first person who came to the Wild West with a bright and happy mission - to show the cowboys the great art of cinematography.
This picture is truly an amazing creation, very funny, but at the same time sad. It gathered the best cast of its time - Andrei Mironov, Alexandra Yakovleva, Mikhail Boyarsky, Nikolai Karachentsov, Igor Kvasha, Semyon Farada, Lev Durov, Spartak Mishulin, Albert Filozov, Leonid Yarmolnik, Oleg Anofriev, Mikhail Svetin, Borislav Brondukov, - of which only a few have survived to this day…
Oleg Tabakov got the bright and very funny role of the charming, funny, but self-serving owner of the saloon Harry McCue.
Melody for barrel organ
The 2009 drama film Melody for the Street Organ, directed by Kira Muratova, is a cold and cruel Christmas tale that tells the hopeless story of half-brother and sister, after deathmothers who set off on Christmas eve to look for their fathers, and time after time stumble upon a cold wall of indifference from the people they meet.
This wonderful tape is more than just a movie. The picture causes both rejection and irritation, bordering on the desire to leave the auditorium, and a strange feeling of embarrassment from being involved in what is happening, and, in the end, tears of purification. It is almost impossible to retell the "Melody for the barrel organ", intended primarily for all fathers and mothers. She needs to be seen.
Oleg Tabakov in this difficult picture played the character "Kotya", a smug and prosperous gentleman who decided to give the found boy, one of the main characters of the film, his "Kise" as a Christmas present, but in the end only joined the ranks of those indifferent to someone else's grief of passers-by…
Kitchen. The Last Stand
I would like to finish this brief review with the last role played by Oleg Pavlovich. His hero was Pyotr Arkadyevich Barinov, the father of chef Viktor Barinov in the comedy "Kitchen. The Last Battle", which was released in April 2017. The picture itself is a full-length version of the famous and very popular TV series "Kitchen" with all the ensuing funny consequences and sparkling recipes.
What makes her remarkable, perhaps, is the presence of 81-year-old Oleg Tabakov, very brightand a wise man saying goodbye to his on-screen son Victor and to all of us.
A year after the release of this film, the great actor Oleg Pavlovich Tabakov passed away…
Films with the participation of Bezrukov: "High Security Vacation", "Yesenin", "Master and Margarita" and others
Sergey Bezrukov is a rare theater and film actor who is loved by viewers of different generations.

In our material, we recall his main roles and the best works in cinema

The king's noble musketeers and the cardinal's vile guards. The gullible king and the insidious Cardinal Richelieu, the beautiful Anna of Austria and the treacherous Milady Winter … The summary of the novel "The Three Musketeers" came out not quite concise
