Lyudmila Tselikovskaya

Lyudmila Vasilyevna Tselikovskaya (Russian: Людмила Васильевна Целико́вская, 8 September 1919 – 4 July 1992) was a Russian actress, best remembered for her leading parts in films like Hearts of the Four (1941–1944), Anton Ivanovich Gets Angry (1941), The Aerial Cabman (1943), Ivan the Terrible (1944), Twins (1945) and The Busy Estate (1946). She had a troubled artistic career and received her (relatively modest) People's Artist of the RSFSR title only in 1963 (having been notoriously denied the much coveted People's Artist of the USSR accolade). Ignored by the officialdom, Tselikovskaya was admired by the general public and is revered as a true legend of the Soviet War time cinema.
