    Anatoly Kuznetsov: biography

    Anatoly Kuznetsov – a Soviet and Russian theater and film actor, who received in 1979 the title of people’s artist of the RSFSR. Anatoly Borisovich has starred in more than hundred movies, but most movie fans he is associated with the role of the red army Sukhova in the popular Eastern «White sun of the desert».

    Anatoly was born in Moscow in 1930. His father, Boris Sergeyevich Kuznetsov was known at the time singer who worked at the Bolshoi theatre and played in the jazz band Victor Knushevitskogo. Mother Evdokia Davydovna also had artistic inclinations, but professionally on the stage is not realized. Cousin Mikhail Kuznetsov is an actor, very popular in the 50-70-ies.

    Parents from early childhood began to instill in your son a love of art. Singh first studied music in school, and when showed their singing skills, was transferred to the vocal Department of the Moscow Central music school, which was considered the best in the country. For continuing education the young man entered the musical school named Ippolitova-Ivanov, which he didn’t have to finish.

    One of the compulsory subjects in the school dramatics needed for future singers no less than future actors. Teacher Nina Iosifovna Smirnov, who previously collaborated with the Studio but I noticed that the student Kuznetsova natural talent for the dramatic arts, moreover, the manner of behavior on stage, Anatoly was much closer to theatre than to the academic vocal. It was she who advised the young man to change the selected profession.

    Next summer Anatoly Kuznetsov tries to do at once in two high school theater and to my surprise successfully passed exams in both. After consulting with specialists, blacksmiths, selects the school-Studio of MKHAT, where he studied with Alexander Karev until 1955. After graduating from the school of Moscow art theatre joined the troupe of the Theatre-Studio of film actor.


    An adventure film «Dangerous path» was the debut for student of third-year medical student Anatoly Kuznetsov, who played a young scientist Nikolay zheludev. In the late 50’s, he began acting very active and appeared in such movies as «Guest from Kuban», «the Black sea», «the case of the mine eight», «Give the book of complaints» and many others.

    In 1969 came the ironic movie «White sun of the desert». The role of the returning home of a red army soldier Fyodor Sukhov in the performance of Anatoly Kuznetsov brought the actor the all-Union glory, and the character has become virtually a cult hero. After 14 years, the actor will return to that role when play Sukhova in the children’s movie «adventures of Petrov and Vasechkina».

    Only in the career of Kuznetsov about 100 roles in films, both domestic and foreign production. Aroused great interest among the audience, the military drama «Hot snow», the epic «Battle for Moscow», historical mystery, «Turkish gambit» and many others. But Chubais himself considered his best work, the role of the peasant in the Czechoslovak social drama «Gordubal». This picture of the Soviet viewer is not shown, so Kuznetsov, at his own expense hired a translator, independently voiced and showed the film to friends.

    It is not strange, but despite the excellent vocal data, and practical professional education in the movies songs performed by Anatoly Kuznetsov sounded very rarely, or rather only twice. For the first time in the drama production «the case of the mine eight» and many years later in a military film made in Bulgaria «Bratushki», in which the role of soldier Olesya Casanoca the actor was awarded a Silver medal named after Alexander Dovzhenko.

    Kuznetsov also voiced a lot of movies. Moreover, he not only dubbed into Russian language of foreign paintings, but also became a voice for actors in the Baltic, Central Asian and Caucasian Soviet republics, whose speech was heard is invalid Soviet censorship accent.

    In his student years Anatoly Kuznetsov on one of the movie party of Galina Volchek became acquainted with Alexandra Lyapidevskii, which he studied at VGIK, and was the daughter of the legendary polar Aviator, Hero of the Soviet Union, Anatoly Lyapidevsky. Wife for a long time had no children, and only when both were already over 40 years old, had a daughter Irina. She has infected the Ira as her parents, and she became an art historian, graduated from MSU in the relevant specialty.

    Anatoly Kuznetsov and Alexander lived together for a very close-knit family, having to celebrate silver and Golden wedding.
