Two songs from the movie "The Man from Boulevard des Capucines" that we will not hear in the movie
“The Man from the Capuchin Boulevard,” as you all know, is the last completed work of Andrei Mironov in the cinema. He managed to see the film on the screen of one of the small cinemas on the outskirts of Leningrad. Then he called Surikova from a pay phone, said that he was pleased with the work. But I complained that there was no place in the film for the song “It's over.” There such shrill words were: "To each his own, to you is fun, to me is torment, and time heals only those who are not fatally ill"
And soon the wonderful actor was gone ...
The song, like all those included in the film, was written by Gennady Gladkov to the poems of the poet Julius Kim. And it was recorded by Andrei Mironov (with the help of Mikhail Boyarsky and Larisa Dolina).
But Alla Surikova did not insert her into the film. Why? Perhaps due to the fact that this composition did not fit into the funny comedy, which she shot, neither the text nor the melody - it is too sad and lyrical.The only scene in the film where you can imagine it (and, possibly, for which it was written) is the moment when the hero Mironova died in the saloon after Black Jack’s meanest shot.
Or perhaps it was written for the original finale of the film. The fact is that according to the script, Mr. Fest did not only lose a friend (Billy King)
but also the girlfriend — Diana should have remained a pastor’s captive
This Mironov did not like at all - the main character in a western should not be the loser. The actor has put one condition on which he agrees to work in the film - to change the ending of the film. He did not want the film to end sadly. Therefore, he suggested that at the end Diana overtakes Fest, breaking free from the treacherous pastor
Here is the song
By the way, the final song, sounding in the film, was also not fully included in it, the second verse was cut out of it. Perhaps because of the timing, and maybe for some other cinema requirements. The full version of the song sounds like this.
But this is not the only song that Surikova did not find a place in the film. It did not include another song by Diana Little "Everything is Fine" performed by Larisa Dolina
It only remains to add that those who bought a vinyl record with the soundtrack of the film at one time are well acquainted with these songs - the disc begins with one of them and the other ends.
