Arkady Inin is a name familiar to everyone who has even briefly encountered such a unique phenomenon as Soviet satire. A well-known screenwriter, humorist, screenwriter and writer - for his creative work he published more than twenty books, was the scriptwriter of many sensational comedies. However, he is best known to the general public as one of the creators and authors of the idea of the cult humorous program Around Laughter.
Who is he - Arkady Inin?
The biography of the outstanding screenwriter and writer began very prosaically. How did it all start? Inin Arkady Yakovlevich Kharkovite. It was in this city that he was born three years before the start of the war. His father died at the front, and his mother raised her son herself.
Influenced by her mother (she was an engineer), the future screenwriter entered the Kharkov Polytechnic Institute. As Yining himself later admitted, he did not feel much love for the profession of an engineer. At that time, he didn’t care where to go and who to be, and the decisive role in choosing the first speci alty was played by his mother’s offer to enter the Polytechnic University. After working as an electrical engineer for eight years, he changed his life dramatically, deciding to go to VGIK.
How it all began
Decision on a radical change of profession and,as it turned out, Arkady Inin accepted the rest of his life independently and consciously. Passion for theater, humor, satirical sketches of everyday life came to him while still at the institute. Perhaps the beginning of the career of a writer-humorist can be considered his participation in the KVN game as a team captain. In addition, there were funny amateur "calls" and a student theater of miniatures, for which the future famous screenwriter wrote witty sketches and big programs.
His humorous stories were actively printed by Moscow publications. Inin's satirical sketches appeared on the pages of popular magazines such as Krokodil, Yunost. The young satirist was noticed by local television and soon began writing for television.
Even after graduation and during his eight years of "engineering" Arkady Yakovlevich continued to write. Soon a critical moment came when it was necessary to decide whether to continue as an engineer, study further and write a scientific paper, or abruptly change direction, Yining recalls. Arkady Yakovlevich chose the second path and entered the corresponding faculty of VGIK.
From Gurevich to Ining
Gurevich is the surname that little Arkady received from the parents of Yakov Noevich and Sarah Abramovna. However, for greater harmony, like many theater and cinema figures at that time, he took a pseudonym in honor of his wife Inna. Later, according to the documents, Arkady Yakovlevich officially replaced Gurevich with Inin. Interestingly, his wife, to whom he owesthe appearance of her famous surname, flatly refused to become Inina, and remained Inna Ivanova.
Creativity, film and television
Today, according to the scripts of Arkady Inin, forty films have been shot, including the beloved comedies: “Once upon a time twenty years later”, “Fathers and Grandfathers”, “Lonely people are provided with a hostel”, “Once lying”, “Private detective”, “The weather is good on Deribasovskaya”, “Good luck to you, gentlemen”. Few people know that he also participated in the creation of some of them as an actor of episodic roles. However, even flashing in the frame for a moment, Arkady Inin managed to create an atmosphere of joy and optimism.
Domestic television over the past forty years is already impossible to imagine without witty, bright, gathering a huge audience of television programs, the author and creator of which is Ining. He has more than two hundred television and radio projects to his credit. Who doesn't remember “There's a City Somewhere, or a Countrymen's Club”, and what is his “Tram of Desire” or “Family Club” worth?
Today, in the post-Soviet space, there is hardly a person who has not heard the phrase "Around laughter." This legendary comedy program was on the air for twelve years, from 1978 to 1999. Arkady Inin was at the origins of its creation as one of the authors.
His prose, stories and books, as well as films and TV programs, are saturated with good humor and optimism. Every five years, Professor Arkady Inin recruits students for his course at VGIK and gets as much pleasure from teaching as he does from creatingscripting and essay writing.
With irony about social networks, gloss and selfies
In the creative biography of Arkady Yakovlevich there was a collaboration with the famous glossy magazine Cosmopolitan. For five years he wrote essays for a column on the male view of women. And then published three books about women, as always, with light humor and love.
The famous screenwriter in relations with modern technologies, social networks, the Internet remains a man of old morals and habits. He has neither personal blogs, nor an author's website, nor even a page in one of the popular social networks. Arkady Inin does not understand photos on the Internet, telling the whole world how your day begins, endless "likes" and being online around the clock. In his opinion, it is better to make love or read a good book. Well, it's hard to disagree.
