He Fought for His Homeland in Cinema

08.02.2018

On February 8, 2018, it is the 90th anniversary of Vyacheslav Tikhonov, a brilliant actor, the USSR People’s Actor, Hero of Socialist Labour.

Vyacheslav Tikhonov acted in the films which had become classics during the life of the actor. He did not simply act, he lived the life of his hero, together with him he loved, suffered and fought.

One of his heroes in cinema was Nikolay Streltsov in the film “They Fought for Their Country” made by Sergey Bondarchuk after the title novel by M.A.Sholokhov. V.Tikhonov managed to convey the nature of a persistent war veteran, who having become almost deaf mute after severe concussion voluntarily returned to the ranks, to his unit in the most difficult period of the Great Patriotic War to fight for his Homeland.

The work by Tikhonov was highly appreciated by the viewers, it was not lost against the background of the acting skills of other members of the cinema team – S.Bondarchuk,V.Shukshin, G.Burkov, I.Lapikov, N.Gubenko. The actors did not simply perform the roles, they fought for their Country in cinema.

By that time the actor had created the images of Andrey Bolkonsky in “War and Peace”, a teacher Melnikov in “We'll Live Till Monday”, Maxim Isayev (Shtirlits) in “Seventeen Moments of Spring”. V.Tikhonov performed the role of Nikolay Streltsov also brilliantly, and in 1975 he was entitled the Best Actor of the Year.

In 1974 and 1975 Vyacheslav Tikhonov visited Vyoshenskaya, met with M.A.Sholokhov and the residents of Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya. These events are shown in the pictures which are kept in the collection of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov.
