1984 interview with Russian Sherlock Holmes [22 Mar 2016|03:59pm]

alek_morse

In this day, 22 March 1980 there was TV premiere of first two episodes of "Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson" produced by Lenfilm studio.

I have found 1984 interview with Vasily Livanov.

VISITING HOLMES
Topic: Autograph for you
The newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda", September 18, 1984
Reporter: A. Koroleva

Yes, my dear reader, a friendship between two literary characters influenced the relationship of actors who performed their roles in the TV adaptation. Before the film Vasily Livanov and Vitaly Solomin were not even familiar. According to Livanov, on the set, they have found the right path to understanding. A close creative friendship arose. As a result, V. Solomin staged Livanov’s play "My favorite clown" in the Maly Theater, he also played a major role in the play. And now, after the next episodes of "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson," they dream about the duo in the film based on the V. Livanov’s novel.

Vasily Livanov responds to readers' questions.

E. MOTUZ, FROM BENDER: During this era of the insane speeds, born of scientific and technological progress – unflappable, calm, thoughtful Holmes seems especially is welcome on TV...

LIVANOV: I also wondered why in the 1980s, we suddenly turned to Sherlock Holmes? What do we want to say to our audience? Why is Holmes a modern hero for us?
For me, Holmes is a modern hero, because he is devoted to the cause and also is example of absolute unselfishness. I admire his moral mental readiness to help in distress. He struggles against evil, against any manifestation of anti-humanism. That's why I put my civil feelings in this image. I was very proud when in Monte Carlo in 1982, the special edition of the film festival magazine published an article with the words: "The real Sherlock Holmes is a Soviet." Particularly I’m pleased that our Holmes is recognized by the British. On last festival evening there has been such a case. The British delegation head approached to the Soviet delegation head and said: "I understand that actor Livanov should sit with your delegation, but Sherlock Holmes should sit with us."

alek_morse

WHAT CAN I SAY?

Chapter 1 – from a book ‘The Baker Street on Petrogradskaya” published by SÉANCE & Amfora in 2007, St. Petersburg

Written by Igor Maslennikov, film director of Sherlock Holmes series produced by Lenfilm studio in 1979-1986

The Baskerville Hounds would like to meet. - Thanks to the pirates of West Berlin. - Margaret Thatcher is responsible for England. – A conspiracy of silence.

A call from London:
“Mr. Maslennikov?”
“Yes...”
“Igor?”
“Igor...”
“It's Dartmoor’s Sherlock Holmes Society ‘THE BASKERVILLE HOUNDS’... Our president Philip Weller would like to ask you to meet with us ... My name is Tanya ... Please, write my London telephone number”.
“I'm sorry, but I do not understand anything”.
“Dartmoor’s Sherlock Holmes Society ‘Baskerville Hounds’ loves your movies and wants to meet you ... We are ready to come to St. Petersburg”.

A friendly caricature of Vitaly Solomin as Dr Watson [19 Feb 2016|11:59pm]

alek_morse
I scanned a friendly caricature of Vitaly Solomin drawn by artist K. Kukso. It was published in a satirical magazine "Krokodil", 1988 (USSR).


Also the note from it :

CORR.: What do you most enjoy doing?
SOLOMIN: I like to play. I also work as a father, a head of the family, and so on.
- What you have in common with your brother?
- A surname.
- Who do you most dislike?
- I don't like impertinent people. Sometimes I have a chance to teach them a lesson. And, then I remember it with pleasure a long time.
- Do you feel yourself a little bit Dr. Watson?
- Film director Igor Maslennikov has convinced me that I am a typical Englishman. (...)

Russian Sh. Holmes and J. Watson in the ladies' hats [18 Mar 2015|12:36am]

Finally, they have loaded this film with English subtitles!

My Dearly Beloved Detective (1986) - a comedy about the adventures of Shirley Holmes and Jane Watson against Inspector Lester and his evil plans of shaming the two women for outsmarting Scotland Yard.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vphyWrz4Vv4


I have translated a short article from a Soviet paper "Izvestia" published on the eve of the TV premiere March 5, 1987.


Holmes and Watson in the ladies' hats

Author: V. Treskov / newspaper "Izvestia", March 5, 1987

On Sunday, March 8, new TV movie "My Dearly Beloved Detective" to air at the 1st channel of the Central Television.

It is no coincidence that the day of the premiere coincides with International Women's Day. This film is also about women. They have a lot of advantages, but there is one more thing: any detective deduction and induction pale before the women's intuition. So, the women are the innate detectives.

Igor Petrenko about his role of Sherlock Holmes - an interview [19 Nov 2014|04:11am]

alek_morse

Igor Petrenko: A Battle with a Stereotype (6th November, 2014)

MK.ru (an original Russian version) - http://crimea.mk.ru/articles/2014/11/06/igor-petrenko-osvoenie-kryma-nachal-s-sinikh-gub-i-rvoty-potom-priekhal-v-poiskakh-karmen.html
Translated by http://spiritcc.tumblr.com/

.
Q:   Sherlock for you is not just an on screen appearance...
.
Igor:   Of course...I got lucky that Sherlock Holmes got into my acting way. Andrey Kavun made an unusual story. And I know that many didn't accept that portrayal of the detective the first time, because it didn't fit any of the stereotypes. How can it be - Sherlock Holmes can't fight, picks his nose, chews loudly while eating, is a drug addict, nervous and unstable...But it's important for me that I was in the character, I finally managed to work on it myself, think of the plasticity, walk, manners, laugh... It's a true actor's happiness! I understand that 162 shooting days in that piquant character were some serious learning, and it gave me a lot, thanks to partners such as Andrey Panin, Mikhail Boarsky, Svetlana Kryuchkova - I can go on for a while. And I must say thank you to the director - Andrey Kavun gave me a freedom of search, gave me a possibility of rehearsing and failing, searching and finding. He wasn't afraid of this rare in our days searching period, and as a result we got a truly actor's movie, that is hard to find nowadays. It simply doesn't exist anymore - in general, movies are mostly for producers - quickly learn the text and quickly scatter along the shooting place
.
Q:   Were you afraid of inevitable comparison with the great Vasily Livanov's interpretation from the very start?

Rec's for Paranormal Holmes & Watson Tales? [02 Aug 2014|04:54pm]

earthspirits

Any recommendations for a good contemporary Holmes and Watson book or series of short stories that have a horror or paranormal aspect to them?

Interested in both formally published works ("physical" or e-book), or in well written fan fic.

I've pretty much finished everything I have on hand in this genre, and am hoping to find some interesting new reads.

Thank you!

Fic: An Affinity for Bees [14 Dec 2013|09:32pm]

shouldboverthis
Title: An Affinity for Bees
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Word Count: 5,190
Rating: NC-17 (mild)
Warnings: major character death, minor character death mentioned
Spoilers: None
Summary: "The Man No One Liked" universe. The year is 1950, Sherlock and John have retired to Surrey where Sherlock keeps bees, but all stories end, and all hearts are broken.
Author's Note: At last, the long promised, long feared "final" chapter in the TMNOL universe. It was hard to write. I hope it isn't a disappointment. Thoughtfully betated by lawless523, but then abused again by me. All mistakes mine.
