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) - main picture used with kind permission of Lesley Richardson.

   Vignettes [Film]



  •       Vladek is often credited with appearing in the films "Funny Money" (1982) and "The Music Lovers" (1971)          but he  did not appear in either film. 
  •       Vladek was offered a role in the 1985 Polish movie "Zygfryd" but did not participate.*
  •       In 1977, Vladek worked on the as yet unreleased Ken Russell Film "Moll Flanders."

 

 

Dubbing [Film]

Vladek's voice is dubbed in the following films:

  Feuer und Schwert (Die Legende von Tristan und Isolde). English title is Fire and Sword.

                  This film looks to be set in Medieval England, and everyone has an English accent.
                 

 Return from The Ashes
                  Dubbed for unknown reasons.
                 

Bordella
                  This film has been shot on location in New York and apart from a shot towards the end of the film where a scene                    is played out in Rome, the actors are speaking English words as for the most part the cast are English speaking                    actors. The film has then been dubbed into Italian.
                   

Pilatus und Andere
                   Dubbed for unknown reasons.
