Author of the blog tells/writes mostly about what is not so generally known as the modern day international pop-culture events and people, which Author dislikes, especially the modern day Russian ones.
The Russian-Lithuanian movie, released in 1971, is my favorite screen version of the book Treasure Island (1883) by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894). Could I forget the main character Jim Hawkins? The blond blue-eyed boy with his golden skin and natural pony-tail, which long hair would be a usual hairstyle among the comely blue-eyed blond youths of the Baltic republics, soon after 1971. In 1971, other imaginative movie was realized, Death in Venice. Two movies in 1971. Two seashores. Two beautiful blond boys. Two screen versions. Two books by European classic writers. Coincidence? Personally I don’t believe in coincidences.
