Yesterday, December 18, marks 95 years since the birth of Yuri Nikulin.
He was born in 1921, participated in the Finnish and the great Patriotic war, and after demobilization he tried to do to VGIK, but was not adopted due to the lack of acting ability, as decided by the members of the selection Committee. But Nikulin took in the Studio clowning at the Moscow circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard — and with this circus he was associated for many a century. After the Studio he worked as an assistant to the famous clown Pencil, then made a duet with Mikhail Suygenim, and in 1982 became Director.
Thank Nikulin brought not only a clown Reprise, but also the role in the movie. He began acting in the late 50’s, was a memorable Dunce in comedies by Leonid Gaidai, starring in “Diamond hand” and “Old men-robbers”. But in the movie opened and a flair for the dramatic Nikulina — in a war movie “They fought for the Motherland”, “Twenty days without war”, to “Andrei Rublev” by Andrei Tarkovsky, in the drama “Ko mne, Mukhtar!”. But the main thing for him was the Circus on Tsvetnoy — Yuri Nikulin headed it until his death, when it was built a new building of the circus. He died in 1997 from complications after heart surgery.
