    It is interesting that around the Comedy «the Rich bride» became the first among the very popular paintings pyreva, erupted serious scandal. Because starring was involved the actors of the Moscow Marina Ladynina and Fedor Kurikhin, and the secondary was mostly Ukrainian artists, the Committee on censorship managed to see the film’s nationalistic bias. Comedy laid on the shelf and maybe the films of Ivan Pyr never would have seen the light, and his career would have ended, but in 1938 the «Rich bride» revised personally by Joseph Stalin and was ordered to immediately release it.

    After the war, the film creates a strong melodrama «loyalty Test», and processing the painting «Our mutual friend» and military drama «light of a distant star». But of special significance for the Director in his last years is the rethinking of creativity Fyodor Dostoevsky. Ivan takes a Grand film «the Idiot» and as lyrical in its dramatic cinematographic novel «White nights». The latest work pyreva was the film version of «the Brothers Karamazov», which, interestingly, is the latest work in Dostoevsky. The Director had to shoot two of the series, but the final part of the painting being finished already his friends, Mikhail Ulyanov and Kirill Lavrov, who themselves acted in the mini-series.

    Personal life

    In 1933, in the film «Conveyor of death», the Director meets with actress Ada Wojcik, which changed the status of the personal life of Ivan pyreva and became his first wife. He was born the son of Eric, but the child was unable to prevent Hell to leave her husband when he started having problems with the management of «Mosfilm». In addition, Ivan is torn between his feelings for his first wife and obvious sympathy for the star of his comedies, Marina Ladynina, who was the only person who supported pyreva in difficult times. As a result, the man opted for the Marina.

    Ladynina was with him for more than 20 years and all these years, remained consistently the main actress of his paintings. The couple had a son Andrew Ladynin, who later became a Director. Interestingly, pyrev and Ladynina got married officially only in 1955, and a year later they celebrated 20-year anniversary of living together. Soon, however, the family was ruptured. In the last joint film «loyalty Test» Marina played a woman who takes husband, and that role turned out to be prophetic. The fact that Ivan was fond of the young student, Lyudmila Marchenko, which was shot in «White nights». He left his wife for this girl, despite almost 40 years difference in age.

    Ladynina, which at one time supported pyreva in his moments of collapse, could not forgive the betrayal and the end of life not supported him no relationship. Apparently, the woman said her ex-husband a lot of unpleasant words, as Ivan with the help of his authority, forbade the Directors to remove the Marina, and she was no longer in demand. However, the Director did not build happiness with Lyudmila Marchenko: her family was against this relationship, and she decided to accept the courtship of a young contender for her heart.
