The best films of the Soviet cinema. 1966
The time has come to return to the old (and unfinished) heading "The best films of Soviet cinema", where we remember which films are famous for one or another year. We stopped at the 1965th. It means 1966 is next in line. It's bad that it is difficult to find all the old issues of the magazine “Soviet Screen”, where in the last issue of each year a complete list of rolled films was printed. But remember the most notable films of the year in our power
According to the results of the year, the leader of the film was not even a film, but the first episode of the film - the first part of the film adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s novel War and Peace - Andrei Bolkonsky (58 million viewers)
But about the second and third series of this film, we will remember when we talk about the next, 1967
The third place, after the brilliant comedy "Only Girls In Jazz", took an adventure film about the scouts "On thin ice" (42.5 million viewers)
Interestingly, according to the results of the audience vote of the magazine "Soviet screen", the best film of the year was recognized as another adventure film - "Nobody wanted to die," which took 20 place in the box office
But back to the rental leaders.Losing a couple of places to foreign ribbons, the melodrama "Women" took the sixth place (35.6 million viewers)
And the seventh drama "Viper" (34 million viewers)
In general, the year was rich in good films. About this year's films was a report in the American magazine LIFE
