How much the audience would have lost if I had surrendered that evening!
May 10, 1978 - Odessa, the first day of filming the Venue and Vladi's birthday, which was celebrated at a country house with friends.
Govorukhin told how Marina suddenly took him to another room, locked the door and, crying, asked him to let go of Volodya and shoot another artist. Then Vysotsky joined in: “Fame, understand, I have so little left, I cannot spend a year of living on this role!”.
“How much the audience would have lost if I gave up that evening!” Govorukhin recalled.
Vysotsky made sparing shooting mode. In July, he flew to France to Marina, then rested in Tahiti, then went to New York, then to the Hawaiian Islands ...
The whole group was waiting for him patiently. The pursuit of Fox was filmed without Vysotsky. For a whole month the actors talked in a frame with emptiness - there was no Zheglova on the set. When he finally arrived, they took a close-up shot at Ferdinand for a couple of hours: “How to keep, Gleb Georgievich? - Gentle! "And all.
Everybody knew that he was leaving, including Vysotsky himself. Everything in it, from playing on the aortic rupture in the theater to its last pulsating poems - did not speak, shouted about it. Endless concerts, sleepless flights from the continent to the continent, from cold to heat, from night to day, reminded me of agony, escape from myself.
The day before Vysotsky’s death, Govorukhin called his mother, asked how he was doing. She said - "Glory, this is the end. Hear - how screams ..? "
And anyway, any death is always unexpected, it is always a shock.
Govorukhin said that his life was divided into “before” and “after” on July 25.
How many are no longer from our picture?
Here is a photo of Govorukhin standing at the coffin of Vysotsky, and this year he himself left. A year and a half ago, Yevgeny Gevorkian, a composer who wrote brilliant music for the Meeting Place, did not become. Nobody ever remembered about him like that! Although I wrote about him more than once, I asked to make a program, I connected people.
Nobody needs anything today. Only intrigue and false. And the real thing that breaks your heart is not necessary.
Every year less and less relatives gather on the days of the memory of Vysotsky.
And not because they are not. They are alive.
