Filmography

On this page it is hoped to house the full and complete works on film of "The Master" - Vladek Sheybal - from the start of his career in Poland in 1956 in his first film: Andrzej Wajda's 'Kanal' to his final film: 'Double X: The Name of the Game' in 1992. In his truly exceptional international career, Vladek Sheybal played a variety of characters and not always in the villanous role. Many of his characters were villains of course, but who can forget Mr Boogalow [left] from 'The Apple' (1980), and [below] as Michal the Composer from 'Kanal' (1956).
