      It is unfortunate that the Legendary and Talented was an actress whose merits are innumerable.

      The mournful news, Bystritskaya - a representative of the Great Epoch who made her irreplaceable contribution to the Victory - served as a nurse in the hospital when she was just over thirteen years old, left the earthly limits.

      After removing the hustle and bustle of make-up,
      Like a lone pilgrim
      I'm going to your bright temple
      With confession
      My god, Bystritskaya Elina!

      I hear this voice again
      And my gaze hurries to heaven.
      Prayer tremulous word
      Closer to the heart and eyes.

      And now - rises from the wings
      Our sweet angel and soul
      Her Majesty Actress,
      Russian scene Madam.

      Dedication to Elina Bystritskaya

    When he served not far from Moscow, he first stayed with his uncle, then Tretyakov, and then wandered into the performance. With Bystritskaya. The game of great artists shaded gray military days very well. Therefore, dear Elina, she reigns in our memory and in heaven very sorry. .

    I grieve with everyone .... It’s not just ACTRESS who left, the era is gone. The era of justice, equality, life commitment for the homeland. Gone on the eve of Orthodox Easter. I don’t even believe it, but I know that Peter will meet her there at the gates of paradise ... Farewell to Elina ... Who knows, maybe we will meet there ...
    PS But Lyolya from the movie "Komsomols" is also she ...

      I agree. And my mom died at 49 years old. She was a mason of the highest category. One in several areas could lay a well. She received orders, medals, but no one will remind her, except her neighbors. To all worthy people who are no longer with us - the kingdom of God!

      I absolutely agree with you! Everything is the best in this film! Director’s skill? Above all praise! Actors play? Better to play is simply impossible! The most beautiful film. Well, of course, the novel itself is amazing. It's certainly a personal opinion.

      Let me correct you: * Earring with Malaya Bronnaya and Vitka with Mokhov ... *. And so, yes, it turned out very heartily. Well, what do you want if the war swept through her life?! I sang with my soul.
