Oleg Nikolayevich Yefremov is an actor and stage director of legendary rank, a face of his time. In 1956 he created "Sovremennik" Moscow theater, and he also headed the Gorky's Moscow Art Theater from 1970 to his death in 2000. His numerous roles in movies won him people's love. Yet his name is love is veiled with rumors and legends.
Today Soviet stuff is fad amongst the people: the youth swallows the knowledge about it from TV-shows and prints on T-shirts; whilst the older ones skim through their memories of the real one. That book oriented to both of these sides.
