DEATHS ELSEWHERE

October 23, 1994

Sergei Bondarchuk, 74, one of Russia's greatest film directors and a prominent actor, died Thursday of a blood disease in Moscow. He became well-known when he directed and starred in the Mosfilm-produced "The Fate of a Man" in 1959. He won broader fame for his 1965-1967 adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's "War and Peace," in which he played Pierre Bezukhov. The 16-hour movie was re-edited and sold internationally.
