Best Adventure Movies of 1955 : Soldier Ivan Brovkin
10.

Soldier Ivan Brovkin

3.0
7.1/10 IMDB

This exhilarating two-part film (“Soldier Ivan Brovkin” and “Ivan Brovkin on the State Farm”) presented to the country a new national hero – kind, modest, charming and… ne’er-do-well. That “ne’er-do-well-ness” proved “Kharitonov’s special key to audiences’ hearts”. Following Brovkin’s appearance on the screen, Kharitonov had become a star of the national cinema, an idol for millions of people. His incredible popularity may be compared to that of another national hero – the world’s first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. And not surprisingly, it was Kharitonov who made a cameo appearance going up the festival stairs and followed with the adoring eyes of the heroines in V. Menshov’s Oscar-winning melodrama “Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears”.

Starring: Leonid Kharitonov, Sergei Blinnikov, Yevgeni Shutov, Tatyana Pelttser, Mikhail Pugovkin, Valentina Ananina ..
Directed by: Ivan Lukinsky
Release date: 1955-09-08
