The program of the First channel “Tonight”, dedicated to the anniversary of Vladimir Vysotsky, gave many surprises to the audience. Armen Dzhigarkhanyan has admitted that he does not consider Vysotsky great actor’s second wife Ludmila Abramova said that she married him without love, and the former husband of Alla Pugacheva Alexander Stefanovich – as because Vysotsky was in the KGB.
The Studio program of the First channel “Tonight” gathered friends, colleagues and relatives of Vladimir Vysotsky. 25 January 2018 he would have turned 80 years old. Remembered his role, the songs, his novels, talked about work and personal life.
By tradition, talked about the film “meeting Place cannot be changed”. My impressions about Vysotsky shared Sergei Yursky, Vladimir Konkin, Armen Dzhigarkhanyan. Jurassic enthusiastically recalled the theatre of Vladimir Vysotsky, told how Vladimir Semenovich wanted to leave the Taganka theatre and making movies as a Director. Vladimir Konkin was thinking about the generosity of Vysotsky. And Armen B. surprised the audience by stating again, as three years ago in an interview that he does not consider Vysotsky good actor and even more a poet.
“Vysotsky was a hard worker, loved him. It was Wesley. He belonged to the people. They are also swearing, they spit, they also smoked, drank. It was all matching. He’s not an actor, he is a phenomenon, a scandal. Just like Marilyn Monroe. Is she a good actress?! This type is thinking, it is philosophy. He had a way of singing, a way to insist, the way to impose. Give voice to your feelings. I personally, as a viewer, it’s not very much. For my taste, Pushkin is better than Vysotsky,” – said Armen Borisovich on camera from his office.
Most of the guests in the Studio with. agreed. Presenter Maxim Galkin even said that if he saw this interview with the actor prior to the program, you would not put on the air.
The other surprise was the second wife of Vladimir Vysotsky, the mother of his two sons, Arkady and Nikita, actress Lyudmila Abramova. Married to Vladimir Vysotsky it was officially five years from 1965 to 1970.
In contrast to his widow, Marina Vlady, Lyudmila Abramova rarely gives interviews and makes public appearances. In the Studio, visiting Galkin and Menshovoj, Ludmila Vladimirovna was straightforward. She told me that she fell in love with the person of Vladimir Vysotsky, and actor. About his first meeting with him, she still tells with delight.
“I saw that. He was terribly convincing. I fell in love. I first saw a brilliant actor and appreciated. He really kicked the door and said, marry me. And everything was solved. But no power there was no charisma. Just my word which I gave, that would marry the first man who utters this formula. No leg grab, not under the skirt of the climb, and pronounce these words. That’s so simple. You wanted the truth? You heard her,” said Lyudmila Abramova.
While Ludmila Vladimirovna was barely holding back tears, watching excerpts from the films with the participation of the artist. The actress still speaks of the former, deceased husband and father of her children, as of the loved one, the absolute soul mate. Unlike many, Abramov does not think that Vysotsky destroyed the system.
Not everyone who knew Vysotsky, I agree with her. So, the ex-husband of Alla Pugacheva, Director Alexander Stefanovich. He wanted to remove Vysotsky and Vladi in his picture. Was wrote the script, even made photoprobe. But suddenly the then young Director was summoned to the KGB. Led through the long corridors, put in a dark room and two of Colonel in the Soviet intelligence services did Stefanovich warning – Vysotsky and Vlady to pull about conversation forget.
“They asked: “How do you like that idea?!”And I’m like, well, he’s in the theater, plays, Govorukhin here is removed. “You want to be staged on the Odessa film Studio? We can do it. Forget that name forever, and this conversation don’t tell anyone”. The first thing I did was go to the Taganka, called Volodya and told him. He tensed, his eyes filled with tears, and he asked me: “Sasha, what they want from me?”- told Serafimovich.
Recall, Vladimir Vysotsky died in the night of July 25 in 1980. According to the official version, his heart stopped on the background of myocardial infarction. However, his wife Marina Vlady claims that Vysotsky killed drugs.
