GRIGORY ALEKSANDROV (1903-1983), a prominent Soviet Russian film director. Initially associated with Sergei Eisenstein, with whom he worked as a co-director, screenwriter and actor, Aleksandrov became a major director in his own right in the 1930s, when he directed Jolly Fellows (Veselye rebyata) and a string of other musical comedies (Circus-1936, Volga Volga - 1938) starring his wife Lyubov Orlova.
Though Aleksandrov remained active until his death, his musicals, amongst the first made in the Soviet Union, remain his most popular films.
