Innocent Smoktunovsky. Favorite

He was missing, knew everything about hunger, wandered around summer Moscow in a ski suit, a planet was named after him, and he kept his whole life on one straw, which gave him love and faith in goodness … Today he could have turned 86 years old.

How do we remember Smoktunovsky? Probably, each has its own image, consisting of many different theater and film roles. For most, of course, all the same from the movie roles.

The roles of nervous, complex people, often close to madness, brilliantly played by Innokenty Mikhailovich so tightly intertwined with our perception of this personality that they almost hid it.

For example, the main female role in the romantic comedy Proposal (2009) was originally proposed by Julia Roberts, but with the condition to reduce their appetites for a fee. The actress refused, and the role went to Sandra Bullock. I do not think that the film was greatly lost from such castling, but I would be very curious to look at Proposal (2009) with Julia.
