Did You Know?


There were no characters of Frau Saurich and Gabi in the original novel. Tatyana Lioznova's idea was that Frau Saurich could resemble Stirlitz of his mother and, reserved as he was, he could slightly reveal himself before her. Lioznova didn't like the scenes with Frau Saurich that Yulian Semyonov wrote and she decided she would rewrite the script during filming, but nevertheless, they showed the script to Faina Ranevskaya and she rejected the offer to play Frau Saurich. The role went to Emiliya Milton. Her lines were written right on set but Lioznova liked her performance so much that when some scenes with Milton were completed, Lioznova would sit down and write more. See more »

A TV series about the Soviet agent Stirlitz
18 September 2001 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

If anyone would like to see a good TV Series he/she must see "17 moments of the Spring", where Viacheslav Tikhonov played wonderfully the role of the Soviet agent Stirlitz. In fact, this agent never existed, but he was like a compilation of those soviet agents (Kuznetsov, Sorge and others) who died fighting nazi occupation in the territories of former USSR. Leonid Bronevoi also played in excellent way the role of nazi officer Heinrich Mueller. The story of the series was like the one of cat vs mouse. Mueller always suspected of Tikhonov, but could prove nothing.

The soundtrack of the series is also melodic and easy to listen.
