And he won the All-Union fame thanks to the film "Foundling" in 1940, after which will forever remain in people's memory as "Mulia not nervous about me."
In her own memories, Faina Ranevskaya barely let in people in their personal lives.

In his autobiography, the actress recalled how very young she unsuccessfully in love with the hero-lover of the troupe. He did not answer her affection. Worse, he had insulted and humiliated Faina, thereby closing this part of her soul forever.
