Ekaterina Fyodorovna Savinova was a Soviet theatre and film actress and singer most famous for the leading role in the comedy movie Come Tomorrow, Please... directed by her husband Yevgeny Tashkov. She was named Meritorious Artist of the RSFSR in 1965. Ekaterina Savinova was born in the Yeltsovka village into a peasant family, the youngest of four children, her ancestors from Penza Governorate, resettled in Siberia during the Stolypin reform. Her father Fyodor Yakovlevich Savinov worked in kolkhoz. Savinova inherited her singing talent from her mother Maria Semyonovna Savinova, she on August 1944 left for Moscow to enter acting courses. She was too late for exams, so she studied in a farming university and in half a year entered an additional VGIK course launched by Vasili Vanin, she was soon dismissed "for the lack of acting skills", but this didn't stop her, during the next summer she became a VGIK student under Boris Bibikov and his wife Olga Pyzhova. She studied along with her future husband Yevgeny Tashkov.
They graduated in 1950 and in a year they got married. In 1957 their son Andrey Tashkov was born. After VGIK Savinova entered the Gnessin State Musical College to study vocals, her rare voice was so impressive that she was offered to perform at the Bolshoi Theatre and pop scene upon graduation, yet she declined all offers, because she saw herself only as a cinema actress and "just enjoyed singing on her own". She played her first big role in 1949 in the musical comedy Cossacks of the Kuban where she performed the singing parts. According to Tashkov, director Ivan Pyryev tried to seduce Savinova, she slapped Pyryev in the face, after that he used his influence to ruin her career. For many years she appeared only in episodic roles, she received the Best Acting Award at the 1955 Cannes Film Festival along with other actors of A Big Family. From 1952 on she performed at the National Film Actors' Theatre. In 1961 Tashkov decided to produce his own comedy movie with his wife in the leading role. Together they wrote a screenplay which turned to be autobiographical.
The heroine — named after Savinova's childhood friend Frosya Burlakova — was a yound girl with a unique voice who arrived to Moscow from a small Siberian village Yeltsovka hoping to enter the Gnessin College, too late for exams. Many comic episodes were "borrowed" from real life. In addition to all singing parts Savinova voiced one of the characters — Maria Semyonovna, an elderly housekeeper named after her mother. Tashkov, in turn, voiced the leading male character played by Anatoli Papanov. During the shooting Tashkov revealed that his wife had been suffering from high temperature for a long time, yet kept quite about it. At one point they had to call ambulance, he insisted on physical examination. After going through many checks Savinova was diagnosed with brucellosis: she got infected by drinking unpasteurized milk; the shooting had to be delayed for a year. When the film was finished, it turned a great success. Savinova was named the best actress at the 1964 All-Union Film Festival. In 1965 she was named the Meritorious Artist of the RSFSR.
The spouses toured around the country with concerts where Tashkov talked about filmmaking and Savinova performed with songs. During that time she started complaining about "hearing voices". Turned out brucellosis touched her brain and nervous system which led to sluggish schizophrenia. From on Savinova's health had been decreasing, she spent months in mental clinics. She continued acting. In 1964 she played another notable role in the comedy Balzaminov's Marriage, yet the illness had been progressing, Savinova felt it. In 1970 she left for Novosibirsk and spent a month with her sister. On 25 April 1970 Savinova left for Moscow, arrived to a local train station and threw herself under the passing train. "Just like Anna Karenina whose monologue she read during the entry exams at VGIK", as Tashkov recalled. Savinova was buried at the Kleshchikhinskoye Cemetery in Novosibirsk. During the lifetime she was religious, her husband insisted on conducting a memorial service in the Russian Orthodox traditions.
In 2006 the tomb was renewed. In 1995 Leonid Filatov dedicated the 9th episode of his long-running documentary series To Be Remembered to Savinova. In 2011 during the 85th anniversary of Savinova's birth a Museum of Ekaterina Savinova was opened in the Yeltsovka village. Same year a book of memoirs and other writings left by the actress, Light of the Faded Star: Ekaterina Savinova, was published.
