Anatoli Ktorov

Anatoli Ktorov (April 24, 1898 Moscow-September 30, 1980 Moscow) also known as Anatoli Petrovich Ktorov, A. Ktorov or Anatoli Ktorow was a Russian actor and voice actor.

Ktorov was known for his work in theater, film, and voice acting. He started his career as a theater actor in Moscow, where he appeared in productions of prominent playwrights such as Anton Chekhov and Maxim Gorky. He later transitioned to film acting and became a prominent figure in the Soviet film industry. Ktorov is perhaps best known for his roles in the classic Soviet films "The Return of Vasil Bortnikov" and "The Circus".

As a voice actor, Ktorov lent his voice to various animation projects, including the Russian dub of Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". His clear, sonorous voice made him a natural fit for voice acting and helped him to become a sought-after voice actor in the Soviet Union.

Despite his success, Ktorov faced challenges during the Stalin era for his Jewish background. He was briefly imprisoned and banned from working in the film industry for a period of time. However, he was able to return to his acting career and continued to work until his death in 1980.
