Although the picture was shot more than forty years ago, it is still happily revisited by ordinary viewers and professional actors. "The White Sun of the Desert" is the theme of our today's article. How was the masterpiece created and the cast was selected?
"The White Sun of the Desert" was originally dueto shoot Andrei Tarkovsky, and the script to write - Andrei Mikhalkov-Konchalovsky. But everything changed dramatically, and the scenario group was headed by Valentin Yezhov (known for the film "Tsar Ivan the Terrible"), and the director's chair was taken by Vladimir Motyl (who shot "The Star of Captivating Happiness").
The character of Anatoly is a principled man,who is ready to fight for justice to the last, even if the forces are not equal. Fyodor Ivanovich Sukhov always acts consistently, keeps his word and does not refuse the planned plan. As an unconditional leader, the Red Army manages to be persuaded to fight against the Basmachi and the categorical Vereshchagin, the freedom-loving Said, and the young Petrukhu. And although his comrades in the majority were killed, Sukhov brings the case to the end.
The fact is that even during the Second World Warwar, participating in the partisan movement, Luspekaev was seriously wounded. He was even going to amputate his arm, but the young man insisted that the limb be left. However, his problems did not end there. In one of the reconnaissance raids, the actor froze his feet severely. For fifteen years, the arteriosclerosis of the vessels progressed, and in the 1960s Paul was offered to amputate his legs, he again ventured and agreed only to amputation of all fingers.
During filming in the "White Sun of the Desert"Luspekayev was so hard to move that every few minutes the actor had to sit down on a special chair. Each time Paul won his pain and went to the set. But the character that Luspekaev created was almost the brightest in his career.
Said, who was buried on the head in the sand by a banditJavdet, and then freed Sukhov, played Spartak Mishulin. Many actors were auditioned for this role. "White Sun of the Desert" could come out on screens with completely different faces, but the candidatures of many of the applicants were rejected. The role of Sayid went to Mishulina - the actor of the Satire Theater. Prior to his participation in the film, he became famous for his role as Pan Director in the "Kabachkas" of 13 chairs. "After the White Sun of the Desert, Spartak Mishulin began actively acting in films and practically did not take breaks until his death in 2005.
