UVOD

 

Duboko gazimo u drugi vek od dana kada su oživele slike, kada je imaginacija dobila realističku dimenziju i junaci platna se ukazali pred našim očima – isprva nemi, a potom i u svoj svojoj punoći i sjaju, i tako našim malim životima pridodali jednu novu dimenziju, dimenziju snova. Desetine hiljada aktera i stotine hiljada storija ispisali su svoje tragove na celuloidnoj traci; i u ovom času, kako se paralelno sa našim i odvijaju drugi životi, tako se u svakom trenutku, u studijima i na terenima, beleže nove storije i junaci; storije koje će (bar prividno) nadmašiti trajanjem realne živote.

Hiljadu ovde odabranih likova iz svih žanrova i sa svih meridijana, od Moskve do Holivuda, od Rima do Meksika, od Pariza do Bombaja, odabranih po osnovu višestrukih kriterijuma, a poređanih po azbučnom redu, samo su prilika za podsećanje na one sa čijim se likovima najčešće i najradosnije surećemo – pokušaj da se mladim generacijama, otkriju i pokažu legendarni likovi iz starih vremena, u istoj ravni sa savremenicima; starijima: radost podsećanja, možda komparacija.

Od oko 15.000 filmskih umetnika, koji su do detalja proanalizirani pri ovoj selekciji, u pokušaju rangiranja morala bi se imati na umu činjenica da je po najčešćoj oceni na tronu Hemfri Bogart. Mnogi bi, ipak, tom imenu suprotstavili Marlona Branda. Ili bi kazali – Robert De Niro. Ima i onih koji bi upisali: Bili Bob Torton. Forest Vitaker. Gari Kuper. Jedna epizoda maestralnog Džona Milsa u filmu Rajanova kći vredi više nego desetine nekih glavnih uloga. Ili Ian Holm kao kaplar Himelstos u priči Na zapadu ništa novo. Meril Strip bi, svakako, po mnogim ocenama, mogla da ponese epitet najbolje glumice svih vremena. Bet Dejvis, Ketrin Hepbern,... takođe.

Sastav ove enciklopedije je i napor da se pažljivo saberu činjenice i pomire ukusi – u protivnom, primerice, sjajni epizodista Džo Vitereli imao bi mesto u ovoj enciklopediji mnogo pre Ričarda Gira, Toma Kruza, Hju Granta, Harisona Forda; čak bi, ako bi ukus priređivača bio primaran, i jedna Silvija Kristel tu bila pre Meg Rajan, Dajen Kiton ili Sandre Bulok.

Ova enciklopedija je, dakle, poput pokretnih slika, pred Vašim očima; ukoliko se podeli zadovoljstvo, ukoliko se u najvećem poklope ukusi – eto još jednog razloga njenog postojanja.

 

 

 

FOREWORD

 

We are wading well into the second century from the day when pictures came to life, when imagination gained a realistic dimension and heroes from the silver screen appeared before our eyes – silent at first, and then showing themselves in all their  fullness and glory, adding a new dimension to our small lives, a dimension of dreams. Tens of thousands of characters and hundreds of thousands stories have left their marks on the celuloid tape; even today, at this hour, just as other lives are unfolded simultaniously with our lives, in every moment, in studios and in the field, new stories and heroes are being recorded; stories which will (at least virtually) outlast real world lives.

A thousand faces herein, picked out of all genres and parts of the world, from Moscow to Hollywood, from Rome to Mexico, from Paris to Bombay, selected on the basis of multiple criteria, arranged alphabetically, are merely an oportunity to reminisce about the ones whose faces we most commonly and most gladly meet – an attempt to reveal and show legendary old time characters to the young generations on the same plane with contemporary characters; to the elderlies, the joy of reminicance, and maybe comparation.

From around 15.000 motion picture artists, which have been analized in detailed during this selection, when attempting to perform ranking, one must bare in mind the fact that, at any rates, Humphry Boggart would take the throne. Many would, nevertheless, opose Marlon Brando to that name. Or – Robert De Niro – they would say. There are those who would write: Billy Bob Tornton. Forest Whitaker. Gary Cooper. A single episode of the majestic John Mills in the movie Ryan’s daughter is worth more than tens of some leading roles. Or Ian Holm as corpolar Himmelstoss in All quiet on the western front. Meryl Streep would, certainly, in many opinions take the title of the best actress of all time. Bette Davies, Katharine Hepburn,... as well.

The content of this enciclopedia is also an effort to caredully gather the facts and to establish harmony among preferences – otherwise, for instance, a great supporting role actor, Joe Vitereli would get a spot in this enyclopedia well before Richard Gere, Tom Cruise, Hugh Grant, Harison Ford; one might go as far to say that, if author's preference was primary, one Silvia Chrystel would be in here before Meg Ryan, Diane Keaton or Sandra Bullock.

So, this encyclopedia is, like the moving pictures, before your eyes; if pleasure is shared, if preferences match – it’s one more reason for its existance.
