 Victor Titov

Born:   March 27, 1939
Deceased:   August 4, 2000

Film director, screenwriter, and actor.


Victor Abrosimovich Titov was born on March 27, 1939 in Stepanakert (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic).
In 1968 he graduated from the director's faculty of the VGIK (All-Union Institute of Cinematography), where he studied under Mikhail Romm and Alexander Stolper. Before his studies in VGIK he had already worked on radio and television in Rostov-on-Don. He was the director of the Mosfilm studio from 1969. Along with that he staged theatre performances (Filumena Marturano in N. P. Akimov Comedy Theater, 1993).

By some inexplicable combination of circumstances most of his films were unlucky. Thus, vigilant censors erased the name of the author from the credits of his graduation work The Soldier and the Queen based on Andrey Platonov's fairy tale. His film The Waltz was banned for the reason of its decadent moods. At the premiere of his feature Ilf and Petrov Were on a Tram the film director unexpectedly found twelve considerable censorship cuts, which changed the intonation of the film. The East Novel was branded as a film kindling international discord. It was only the comedy Hello, I'm Your Aunt! that stood out against this unfortunate background, since it got positive response from both high officials and general public. Victor Titov died on August 4, 2000 in St. Petersburg and was laid to rest on Komarovsky Cemetery.
