Zbigniew Cybulski

Zbigniew Cybulski (better known as Zbyszek Cybulski; November 3, 1927 - January 8, 1967) was a Polish actor, one of the best known and most popular personalities of the Polish cinema after World War II. For his unique style of play, he is often called the Polish James Dean. His roles parallelled somewhat those of Dean, playing nonconformist rebels, and notably he also died relatively young in a needlessly tragic way - run over by a train he was trying to catch. In bitter irony he had been on his way home from a film shoot.

However, Cybulski is best remembered as a screen actor. He first appeared in a 1954 film Kariera as one of the extras. His first major role came in 1958, when he played in Kazimierz Kutz's Krzyż Walecznych. The same year he also appeared as one of the main characters in Andrzej Wajda's Ashes and Diamonds and Aleksander Ford's Eighth Day of the Week based on a short story by Marek Hłasko. Since then, Cybulski was seen as one of the most notable actors of the Polish Film School and one of the young and wrathful, as his generation of actors were called at the time.

In 1996 the readers of Film magazine awarded Cybulski with the title of Best Polish Actor of All Time. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...
