Did You Know?


The original script, approved for production on 25 March 1964, had the student named Vladik (Vladislav) Arkov and contained only the first segments, later entitled "Companion" and "Obsession". In the first segments, Vladik would 're-educate' a gloomy and ignorant person and in the second, would prepare a loony teen named Ilyusha (Ilya), an only child, for entrance exams required to join an institute. The two segments were not enough for a feature film. Leonid Gayday had the idea to have Vladik meet the trio of Booby, Coward and Experienced from Samogonshchiki (1962) and this became the third segment, "Operation "Y", which gave the name to the whole movie.

Three stories about a young man - Shurik and his adventures. for the fans of Soviet comedies from "60-"80 - nothing new. for the viewer from East Europe, all familiar. because the moral lessons, the romanticism , the gags - inspired by American mute comedies , Yuri Nikulin ,Aleksandr Demyanenko are pieces of a cinema who defines the Comunist period in profound sense. and, maybe, this is the difference of perception between different European publics.the work site, the emotions beyound an exam. the citizen lookout for protect the proprieties of the state are the small pieces defining a period, a political system and, sure, a kind of public.
