The song was suppressed under Soviets and contains a obvious nostalgia of about past "tzarists" times. This is a somewhat sad song. Modern pop variant spoiled this feeling...

    [Oct 26, 2016] 101 STRINGS ORCHESTRA - DARK EYES

    Uploaded on Jun 29, 2011

    "Dark Eyes" is a Russian song. Written by a Ukrainian poet and writer Yevhen Hrebinda. Music by Florian Hermann. First published in 1843. Used as the main theme for the TV mini-series "The Mystery of Natalie Wood", a biopic about the actress Natalie Wood (1938-1981). "Dark Eyes" also has been featured in various films, as follows: Wonder Bar (1934); My Man Godfrey (1936); On the Avenue (1937); Shall We Dance (1937); Never Give A Sucker An Even Break (1941); Dark Eyes (1987) ; and, Chocolat (2000).

    Natalie Wood (born Natalie Zacharenko;[2][1][4] July 20, 1938 – November 28 or 29, 1981) was an American film and television actress. She was known for her screen roles in Miracle on 34th Street, Splendor in the Grass, Rebel Without a Cause, The Searchers, and West Side Story. She first worked in films as a child, then became a successful Hollywood star as a young adult, receiving three Academy Award nominations before she was 25-years-old.

    Wood began acting in movies at the age of four and, at age eight, was given a co-starring role with Maureen O'Hara in the classic Christmas film Miracle on 34th Street.[5] As a teenager, her performance in Rebel Without a Cause (1955) earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She starred in the musical films West Side Story (1961) and Gypsy (1962), and received Academy Award for Best Actress nominations for her performances in Splendor in the Grass (1961) and Love with the Proper Stranger (1963). Her career continued with films such as Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969).

    After this, she took a break from acting and had two children with different husbands, appearing in only three theatrical films during the 1970s. She was married to actor Robert Wagner twice, and to producer Richard Gregson. She had one daughter with Gregson, actress Natasha Gregson Wagner. Wood gave birth to Courtney Wagner during her second marriage to Wagner. Her younger sister Lana Wood is also an actress.[6]

    Wood starred in several television productions, including a remake of the film From Here to Eternity (1979) for which she won a Golden Globe Award. During her career, her films represented a "coming of age" for both her and Hollywood films in general.[7]
