Biography

Known as 'The Polish James Dean', Cybulski made his film debut--as did Roman Polanski--with a small part in Andrzej Wajda's "A Generation" (1954). He subsequently became one of Poland's brightest young stars, equally adept in comic as well as brooding dramatic roles. Cybulski is best known in the West as the conflicted resistance fighter in Wajda's masterly "Ashes and Diamonds" (1958). The year after Cybulski was killed in a train accident, Wajda made a pseudo-fictional tribute to the actor, "Everything For Sale" (1968).
