Died Soviet actor Leonid Kuravlyov

On January 30, in Moscow, at the age of 86, the famous Soviet actor Leonid Vyacheslavovich Kuravlev died. This extraordinary personality was remembered for his roles in the films "Afonya", "Ivan Vasilyevich changes his profession", "The most charming and attractive", "The Golden Calf", "The meeting place cannot be changed", "Mimino", "It can't be!", "Viy" and others.

Kuravlyov was a master of improvisation and a man of great and inimitable charisma. Often he played inveterate swindlers, making the characters charming and attractive to the audience. People literally fell in love with his characters, not despised them. The actor came up with unforgettable and funny episodes, sometimes right on the set.

At the same time, in life, Kuravlev was reserved, serious and law-abiding, i.e. the absolute antithesis of their heroes. He only played novels and all his life he loved only one woman - his wife Nina Vasilievna, whom he met in his youth at the rink. They lived together for 54 years and Kuravlyov asked his wife to have his name stamped on the burial slab. During his lifetime, he knew for sure that someday he would be next to his beloved, whom he missed very much.

In early January, the People's Artist of the RSFSR was hospitalized in a serious condition in a hospital in Kommunarka with pneumonia, and then transferred to the hospice. V.V. Millionshchikova. We express our condolences to the family and friends of Leonid Vyacheslavovich in connection with the loss. The memory of Kuravlyov will live for centuries.

    He is usually remembered for his comedic roles. And there were "Unjudged", "Such a guy lives." He could play everything.
    In my opinion, this is the last actor of this level from that cohort to leave.

    There are many unknowns in life, and it will always be so.
    We'll understand when we die
    we will understand everything when we throw off the sinful body
    into the ground forever.
    We will all leave this life, alone like smoke,
    leaving a vision in mind
    others - not hoping for luck,
    from dancing their dance with full,
    and they will drink their cup to the bottom.
    The main thing is not to live long
    and so as not to outlive the children
    and so that in the memory of children
    maintain their suitability.

    Rest in peace! Robinson in his performance is a masterpiece. Now on TV Malakhov and other dandruff will come out. They will dance with mournful mugs on the bones.

    It is simply impossible to forget his Georges Miloslavsky from "Ivan Vasilyevich Changes His Profession".
    And who does not know the phrase "saw, Shura, saw ...".
    My applause!!!
