Frustrated role of Soviet movie stars
• Frustrated role of Soviet movie stars
Priceless archival photographs of famous Soviet actors in the roles that they have not played.
The USSR did not know the word casting. Actors applying for a role in the movie, passed fotoproby film and in exchange for a fee 20-30 rubles.
At the same role sometimes auditioned dozens of actors, which are now quite simply impossible to imagine in these images. D'Artagnan, for example, could have played Vladimir Vysotsky, and Anna Karenina - Alla Pugacheva.
