It’s time to remember the famous film.
In anticipation of the New year, we love to watch the familiar Soviet new year’s Comedy, which even after dozens of years do not lose their “Kenesary”. Every person, even to an adult and not believe in miracles, in the New year just need a miracle, even on the screen: “the Magicians” miracles don’t just happen, they are doing.
The idea for the script science-fiction writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky took from his novel “Monday begins on Saturday”. The script, which was written close to the original, directed by Konstantin Bromberg rejected — Strugatsky were the authors of the banned books and their creations included particularly picky, and there is almost undisguised satire on the leadership… In the second version of the script became an independent Christmas story that had little to do with the story — leaving only the magic Institute and a few heroes. Boris Strugatsky on the resulting film, said: “it was not bad. At first I must admit I did not like at all, but looking at it a couple of times, I got used to it and now recall it without disgust.”
The role of the good sorceress of Alyonushka, which the Director of the Institute of Shemakhan turned into a witch-climber, auditioned Irina Alferova, Irina Murav’eva, Larisa Udovichenko, Natalia Belokhvostikova and other famous Actresses. But no one has developed Muravyova prevented age, Belokhvostikova and Elena Koreneva was too subtle, Irina Alferova, Elena Tsyplakova and Elena Proklova was not convincing in the role of the witch… When I tried a known difficult character of Alexander Yakovlev, the Director said, “the Witch, she will play, but Alenushka unlikely”, but approved it. The actress got along great with on-screen lover Alexander Abdulov, but she was extremely tense relations with Valentin Gaft, they even tried to remove separately.
The role of Ivan auditioned Oleg Yankovsky, Igor Starygin, Nikolay Eremenko, Igor Kostolevsky, Mikhail Boyarsky and others… the Director has approved the favorite of the audience of Alexander Abdulov, but TV executives have long considered his candidacy, and began to work without it. The early days the role of Ivan was played by Sergei Prokhanov is he drove a dashing Troika to the song “Three white horses,” and large plans Abdulov was removed and mounted later. When the actor all-taki have approved, it was found that it can be removed only at night because at the same time was busy with five films!
Director of the Institute of Shemakhan Kira wanted to play Natalia Gundareva, Alisa Freundlich and Margarita Terekhova. The Director was interested in the candidacy of the colors, but when the audition came Ekaterina Vasilyeva, he realized that the best Shemakhan? In a couple of jealous witch looking for impressive all-powerful sorcerer — in this role, auditioned Oleg Basilashvili and Nikolai Grinko, but as a result was chosen as a completely different character and role is different. MAG Kivrin was funny, sincere and a bit clumsy, and played his Valery Zolotukhin.
The role of the comic pair of wizards kovrova and Bryl also auditioned many great actors. Carpet could be Georgy Burkov, Alexander Shirvindt, Andrei Mironov, Yevgeny Steblov or Veniamin Smekhov, but approved of Emmanuel Vitorgan. After started to look for Bryl, the role of which auditioned Yuri Nikulin, Spartak Mishulin Oleg anofriyev and others… But once the Director saw Emmanuel Vitorgan talks with Michael Swetnam, who had to lift up his head to look at him — and Svetina instantly approved.
Inner rooms and corridors of the Institute NUIN, in which the wandering “hero from the South”, was shot in the building of Ostankino television center and the ZIL culture center. Appearance Institute borrowed from the Moscow hotel “Soyuz”, which during installation added the roof from the Suzdal hotel complex “tourist center”. In the “tourist center” was the final celebratory scene of the film.
Scenario “guest from the South” appeared in one episode and made only four phrases, but Semyon Farada has written for “guest” a lot of funny situations and phrases that made the script and the role has become much more. The famous phrase “Who so builds?!” the actor came up with after I could not find a film crew working in one of the many corridors of the television centre… unfortunately, during editing, many scenes with his character were cut.
Victims of censorship was… a cat Vasily. He had a whole narrative line, he was very polite talking cat, but suffered for their feline essence! The movie was episodes the Basil, seeing a cat on the street, come to Shemakha, and asked me to give him a holiday and not in January, and in March, like all cats. Or when he tried to persuade Ivan to succumb to natural instincts and not be afraid to kiss the enchanted Alenushka… the Director was summoned to the boss and reprimanded for its playful allusions, and he had cut, leaving only two of the cry of “ham!” and “Hurrah!”. Most upset Georgy Vitsin, who voiced Basil.
In the 90-ies of the Director Konstantin Bromberg and screenwriter Boris Strugatsky had the idea of making a sequel to “Wizards”. Continuing the story thought “on the topic of the day” — the Institute NUIN attacked people who wanted to get a magic wand to do business. Institute with all the wizards were forced to hide in a parallel world, but Alena needed to get back to the real world, where she left behind a husband and daughter. The project has not taken place from-for problems with financing.
