PostSubject: RIP Oleg Vidov   Wed May 17, 2017 9:09 am

Another of Rob's idols has passed........

Actor Oleg Vidov has died on May 16 at his home in Westlake Village, California at the age of 73, his widow Joan Borsten told TASS.

Oleg Vidov appeared in some 50 films since 1960. He starred in such films as The Headless Horseman and Moscow, My Love. He worked with world-acclaimed film directors, including Sergei Bondarchuk (Waterloo). Even before moving to the United States in 1985, he appeared in many foreign films. While in the U.S., he played in many Hollywood productions, with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Warren Beattly and other Hollywood stars.

In 1988, Vidov and his wife co-founded a company to restore old Soviet animation films. They obtained international distribution rights to the award-winning Soyuzmultfilm Studio animation library in 1992 and helped popularize Russian animation around the world. Later on, they ceded the rights to the animation library to Russian tycoon Alisher Usmanov.

"I must be Pa. I love you, I have for a long time."
