Carnival in Moscow
For Lyudmila Gurchenko, her big break came with Карнавальная ночь, or Carnival Night, in 1956. Unfortunately, the full length version is no longer available, but here's a clip on youtube, although no subtitles. You don't really need them to enjoy this movie. Such a positive spirit. It was also Eldar Ryazanov's first film. She would appear in his films time and again, including the wonderful A Railway Station for Two.
