November 12, 1935 in Kharkov in the family of Helen and Mark Gurchenko was born daughter happy father decided to call Lucy – after the heroine of American film, next to a poster of which he learned the good news. But workers registrar stood the death against the corrupting influence of the West, and the parents of the newborn had to be content with a simple Russian name Lyudmila.
It is the first time, immediately after graduating from high school, was admitted to VGIK and studied on the course, which is led by Sergei Gerasimov and Tamara Makarova.
Early married – for the young director Basil Orda – and soon divorced. And soon I learned that such fame. After the musical comedy of Eldar Ryazanov’s “Carnival Night” Gurchenko woke up famous – it learned the whole country. And all my life, it has proved to themselves and others that it is precisely this – the famous, successful, loved.
The actress and singer died in spring 2011 with the rank of People’s Artist of the USSR and people’s favorite, but simply it came to hundreds of thousands of of people. On the anniversary at the house where she lived, is a memorial plaque, center channel will show documentaries about it.
A TV channel “Russia 1″ timed to the date of the show of the series, which is called – “Lyudmila Gurchenko».
They took “Lyudmila Gurchenko” directed by Sergei Aldonin (“Father’s Daughter”) and Alexander Imakin (series “17+”), and they were able to show Gurchenko life with the help of the actual adaptation of autobiographies written by the singer “My adult childhood” and “Applause.” It is available for the presentation of these books were so popular and withstood several reprints. Gurchenko them was frank and talked about what was happening in her life (until the mid 80′s where it ends “Applause”), as she saw it.
From this position the author’s detachment to the fore in the series came out, those who stood environment actress her career.
Parents Lucy played Nadezhda Mikhalkov and Nikolay Dobrynin, her first husband – director Orda – Ilya Isayev (“Method”, “Homeland”), Eldar Ryazanov – Andrei Leonov. In the series, do a lot of characters, drawn from real people – Gerasimov and Makarova, Ivan Pyryev in the following series will Oleg Yefremov and Nikita Mikhalkov (who played his son Artem). And the selection of actors for these roles was the second unconditional success “Lyudmila Gurchenko».
The first and most important – part in the TV series Julia Peresild.
Peresild on Gurchenko looks remotely similar, but the temperament of the Soviet star passes precisely. It does not eclipse their environment and use it to show how difficult it had this Gurchenko she open the way to the movies, who her this help, and who – prevented.
The film “Lyudmila Gurchenko” is very similar to a two-year old “thaw” – a picture of filmmakers around the same time. However, most of Khrushchev’s “thaw” in the film about Gurchenko – the first in the series – not yet. But the passion for the beloved clearly brings the characters of these films. For him they are ready to sacrifice their own pride sometimes, take what the party says, – hoping that this will masterpiece. After Lena Krylova and her comrades in the “Carnival Night” managed to cheat Director Ogurtsova? And Gurchenko and those with whom she talked were not less talented than the employees of the Palace of Culture Ryazanovskaya comedy.
