Valentina Serova.

She was a legend of the Stalin era, not just a movie star, but the ideal of the Soviet beauty of the 1940s-1950s.

She could argue with all the famous Hollywood stars, because she was natural on the screen, sincere and truthful in her every act, and she was the same in life.

The poem by Konstantin Simonov "Wait for me," dedicated to Valentina Serova, everyone knew.

They copied her, imitated her, they tried to be like almost every woman in our country at least in something.

Men dreamed about it and admired it.

There were a lot of rumors and gossip about her ... but was there any truth in them?

And if there was, then what?

The issue is dedicated to the history of life and the tragic fate of Valentina Serova, one of the greatest actresses of her time.

The program includes footage chronicles of different years and excerpts of the film "Heart of Four" (1941, directed by K.K. Yudin), "Girl with a character" (1939, directed by K. K. Yudin), “Wait for Me” (1943, directors B. G. Ivanov, A. B. Stolper), “Glinka” (1946, director L. O. Arnshtam).
