"Peter, when the Germans will in Moscow, you first hang ..." - said, "well-wishers". But Repnin not only ignored these words, he went to the front as a part of one of the first actors` brigades.
But after the war, Peter Repnin was not demanded of any movie or the theater. But an elderly actor`s daughter, and he`s dedicated himself entirely to Olenka. I went for a walk with her, wrote poems for her, and at night he sang a favorite song - verses from the water carrier "Volga-Volga". If he left for a business trip - always writing letters.
