As Leonid Gaidai shot "Sports Lottery-82"
• How Leonid Gaidai shot "Sports Lottery-82"
Few probably know that the role of Stepan in the film "Sports Lottery-82", played by the wonderful Michael Kokshenovym could give Mikhail Boyarsky. And in the role of Tanya, happy possessor of the ticket, Leonid Gaidai only saw Larissa Udovichenko. And as her fiance - Yevgeny Gerasimov. In fact, during the shooting happened a lot of interesting points. I suggest you learn more about them.
A request for a script called "Sports Lottery-82" Vladlen vladlen bakhnov and Leonid Gaidai filed in creative association of comedy and musical films April 24, 1980. There's the idea of comedy on a contemporary theme came to mind, and the author was given the green light to write a literary script. The work was all summer and the first half of autumn. The plot script, I think, to tell you it is not necessary.
November 4th literary script was tabled in scenario-editorial board of the association. As commented one of the participants of the meeting: "The script is built, it is very good, and the picture on it will Gaidai funny and successful." After one month the scenario approved and main scenario editorial board. However, with some amendments, which the authors had to amend the text to the next debate. As a result, February 25, 1981 has revised the script was finalized and sent to the director development. This period lasted until 7 May. After eight days, the film was launched during the preparatory period.
The new swimming Gaidai went with a proven team. As the main operator, he took Sergei Poluyanova (sixth film together) and Vitaly Abramov (second film), the main artist - Felix Yasukevich (third film), sound engineer - Raisa Margachevu (six films), composer - Alexander Zatsepin (ninth film). 22 - June 23 discussed a screen test performers in leading roles. Before the eyes of the high commission brought the following performers: Kostya - V. Drevitsky (Stanislavsky Drama Theater), Gusev (1st course VGIK), Algis Arlauskas (Youth Theater); Tanya - Larisa Udovichenko; bride Tanya, Paul - Yevgeny Gerasimov, Oleg Izmailov (Studio Theater actor); San Sanych - Michael Pugovkin; Stepan - Michael Kokshenov, Mikhail Boyarsky, Alexander Rudakov ( "thumbnail"), Nikolai Kaptelin (State Circus).
The samples received a mixed reaction from the audience, which is clearly said transcript. Here are excerpts from some of the speeches.
R. Budantseva:..... "The samples are not characteristic for Gaidai Earlier tests have always determined the style, now it is not no heroine She-age is not suitable partners Udovychenko can do nothing in itself to bear for this film the most interesting and Pugovkin Kokshenov .. . "
Semagin: "I have no doubt Udovychenko She played well in the last film with another director, it has the data ...."
Pillars: "I did not like Udovychenko actress must be younger Like Arlauskas, but I think that we should not take Kokshenova But Pugovkin fits ......"
Ossetian: "I really liked Arlauskas Kokshenov better than Boyarsky big doubt is Udovichenko, her character must be under the age of ....".
Ermolin: "Udovichenko may be different, but here it is removed, so that looks older Arlauskas interesting, but it would be very strange look close to Udovychenko Stepan better take Boyarsky, Kokshenov be too recognizable Pugovkin can be ......"
L. Gaidai: "Udovichenko I like, but in this case it is necessary either to select all by Udovichenko, or go from Arlauskas role Stepan written on Kokshenova For myself, I decided... Tanya - Udovichenko, Kostya - Arlauskas Stepan Kokshenov, San Sanych - Pugovkin Paul - Gerasimov Although Paul can play and Boyarsky ... ".
However, in the part of candidates Udovychenko did not agree with the present Gaidai, inviting him to look for someone else. The director had no choice but to implement this recommendation. As a result, after 10 days on the high commission court was represented by a different actress for the role of Tanya - a student of the 4th year of Theater School Shchepkin Svetlana Amanova. This candidacy like almost all those present, and it was cast. At the same time, and was replaced for the role of Paul - instead of Evgeny Gerasimov it was Denis Kmit. Among the other actors, selected on the roles were: Nina Grebeshkova (Aunt Claudia), Borislav Brondukov (Head hostels), Louise Mosendz (secretary), Andrew Width (Golubev).
The place of location filming new movie Gaidai and his colleagues identified the Crimea, namely Alushta, Feodosia and Adler. The last time Gaidai shot in these parts (Alushta, Adler) "Diamond hand", that is, since the time to go 13 years. According to the plan the shooting was to begin on August 27 (the day of the movie), but the group has reduced the period of the preparatory period and the beginning of the shooting a month earlier - on 20 July. We filmed in the Valley of ghosts between Yalta and Alushta - the same place and "the Caucasian captive".
The weather is not spoiled: it was a terrible heat, when everything dries up, because of what had dosnimali waterfall in the autumn (October) in Adler, then blew a cold wind. Collected from all over the coast of the "wild" motorists for big money - 25 rubles per day of shooting - tolerated and heat, and the wind, and filmmakers, which is located on a promontory above the famous beach of Nicholas II and the cave of Prince Golitsyn, where he once kept his famous champagne.
But the shooting was almost ripped off the leading man Algis Arlauskas - a day when they had to start shooting, he had a daughter. As a result, in the Crimea, he went later, and the first scene filmed without him. But on the third day Algis received a telegram which reported an ultimatum - either he immediately comes to shooting, either it is removed from the role. Had a young father, apologizing to his wife immediately rush to the Black Sea. But this mishap Arlauskas not ended. As I said, the weather was awful, and the actor became ill with pneumonia. To the set he had to go with temperature under forty. Svetlana Amanova recalled that when she took off the clothes for the shoot in a bathing suit, she immediately covered with "goose bumps." A Gaidai shouted: "Well, do as something I can not look at this skin She also blue lips Rub it with something, or something!!!!"
The longest we lined up and shot an episode in a train compartment. Arlauskas hero had to eat all the provisions fellow traveler. We had to do several takes. Therefore, the food was much more than we see on the screen.
But the partners Arlauskas then made fun of him, but happy to help in the absorption of food.
by August 25, were shot several hundred meters of useful film (7 rollers) and sent to Moscow for review. This is how one shooting day - August 27 - the correspondent of the magazine "Soviet Screen" Alexander Hort:
"Breathtaking cross - rolling down a steep gradient carboy, followed her rushing motorcycle runaway kept slipping from the hands of his pursuers, did they fail to grasp it is necessary to possess a driver's skill K. Demahina to at high speed to pass this difficult road game... with a bottle in a "cat and mouse" lasts more than three hours. The director, stuntmen and operator of coming up with new tricks to race appeared on the screen as much as possible fun. three hours in a row operator Abramov, crouching, sitting in the trunk of the car, the cat oraya rushes to run against an insidious bottle motorcycle. A fugitive itself holds on two huge "fishing rods" is located behind the operator's assistant ...
Finally, the day filming finished. Ahead - time. the episode will be shot "Marathon".
Marathon - in this case Stepan. His desperate search for it is not only on land but also underwater. And seemingly attacked the owner of the treasured piece of paper trail. Jumping out of the water Stepa in some batches rushes to San Sanych to share his discovery. Far from the city. Night catches the hero halfway, step catching up with a policeman on a motorcycle. Why, they say, you run in such an exotic way? ..
In a car, which will be the operator, installed bright lights. Calculated per meter of distance, defined point where a policeman will (on his part invited the chief of traffic police captain Alushta Zhuravlev), and the place where he will catch up with "marathon". Finally, everything is ready.
- Undress, Mikhail Mikhailovich - gallantly offers Gaidai, tightly wrapping his cloak.
First Cut were damaged. Everything was going well, when shortly before the "finish" from the side emerged unplanned tourist side of the road. Shot a second double ... After the third Kokshenov, tapping his teeth, he said:
- it seems to have gotten ridiculous.
- Perhaps - agrees director. - But we try to do even funnier.
And step out again at a distance ...
Only at ten o'clock in the evening the crew rolls his farm. Enough for today..."
Michael Pugovkin originally conceived Gaidai was supposed to play the role of director of the camp site. But in the process of working on the script Leonid Iovich realized that nobody except Pugovkina can not play San Sanycha - the main negative character. Mikhail Ivanovich for this film became a life-changing - that during his filming in Alushta he met his wife Irina. But Pugovkina too could in the film and not be. The fact that at the beginning of filming, he accidentally poured the boiling tea and very Gaidai asked to replace him. But the director said: "Michael Ivanovich, the main role - only you!" Here's how he Pugovkin recalled the shooting:
"My partner was Michael Kokshenov - Step to play and there was a scene where we race on a motorcycle at a speed of 90 km When I sat down, I feel -... Something soft under my feet I looked, and there plywood even and cardboard . You know, as we have in the movie is: take the old shattered which motorcycle, paint it, and it is like new and the operator said. "Mikhail Ivanovich, let's for once take off", I say it without me, go yourself. I think the second leg as a fail - hello, good-bye, "Sports Lottery".
The second story was the same Kokshenovym, when he in the movie on my behalf sells oranges at the market, and I start to feed it. It so happened that at that time in Yalta was not oranges. And the whole box we had a sham. Hereby was only one orange. And I fed him this single orange, and gives the impression that he was in an episode of eating half a box ... "
The script that lay before Gaidai reminded ledger. He's good at drawing, and literally every kadrik future film was drawn in his hand, like a comic. But the scenario he did not consider the "bible". Invented by any actor funny episode immediately he comes into the picture
already in Feodosia were from September 10 to October 6 shooting, and then from 18 to 22 October - Adler. The group then returned to Moscow, where he starred pavilions from 25 November to 23 December. From December 24 the film editing.
January 11, 1982 hudsovet association looked at the footage and overall was pleased with what he saw. Let me give a couple of statements of some participants.
R. Budantseva: "Comedy is composed, even in this rough assembly seen funny, eccentric" gags "inherent creative manner L. Gaidai Many successful directorial finds ...." K. Warriors: "Comedy turns interesting, bright, but two songs next bad Moreover, even one song - lyric - It seems to me a bad one (heroine) declares his love for Paul And it reduces its image ......."
Working on the film was completed on March 18. At the end of the month picture taken in the State Committee for Cinematography.
Well, what Mikhail Boyarsky and Larisa Udovič? They still also found a job in the film. However, only behind the scenes - Udovychenko voiced secretary director Hostels and Boyarsky played a central song of the film.
The premiere of "Sports Lottery-82" in Moscow on August 2, 1982 in the cinema "October". Due to the fact that long before the film's release, a successful advertising campaign, notify viewers of the future was held that Leonid Gaidai again removes the eccentric comedy on a contemporary theme, people crowded the picture, what is called the shaft. Still, despite a series of setbacks that have befallen this director with the screen adaptations of classic works, the audience continued to trust him. The result was something that few people expect: at the box office the film won the 1st place, collecting 55, 2 million viewers. As we remember, the last time 1st place film Gaidai held 13 years ago - it was the "Diamond Hand", which was filmed in the same places as the "Sports Lottery-82."
Meanwhile, criticism has met the new creation of the great comedy cool enough. Even positive reviews did not have the same warmth that is so different notes dedicated to the art Gaidai. One was called "Sports Lottery-82", or old adventures Shurik "(" Trud ", September 7, Yu Kryuchkov) Here is an excerpt from her.:
"Of course, you feel some fun -. From the process of recognition vu But it is something to laugh in other movies, no longer seems ridiculous ... And then quite simply to drop all familiar - the plot, the characters, tricks Maybe Gaidai well. planned - to make potpourri on their own comedies why Shurika called Bones, and captive -? why Tanya invited new actors - are old coped with their responsibilities ..? It turns out, and a movie - the same lottery for the audience. I hope every time a lot and win - if it does not happen - quite rare. And in this case, we, alas, again no luck - the ticket was the "empty" ... "
