I just read about him in the news. He was complaining about something or other at Cannes Film Festival and he got up and left.

yeah, told all the journalists at the press conference they were dumb :)

which is quite right, most of the time

nice to see new girl asking such 'encyclopedic' questions, Aleksandra

edit: just thought about one should be on the list: Ludwig Fleck

Yep, but I'm not sure if we should promote our country through such controversial characters.... What the hell: Theodore Kaczynski alias the Unabomber, Leon Czolgosz - killer of president William McKinley, George Adamski - the first man who managed to take a photo of a UFO... and last but not least the horrible Wachowski brothers, or should I say a sister and a brother? :)) Of course those all are Americans, but still... :)

Are you talking about the one with the priests? Because all the actors in that advert were actually polish. :)

PS: Nice to see you again Ama. :))

lol I thought only one of the priest was Polish so that makes 3/4 famous Polish people then :)

Nice to see you too Mr M, how's the studying going?

Ohh come on, that's too obvious. Erich von Manstein (von Lewinski) - the co-author of the plan on invading Poland, France, etc... one of the most prominent commanders of Nazi Germany's armed forces. :)

Hehe... It's OK. Actually I should be studying right now, but I'm such a lazy sod. :))

And how are you? ß I’m really being interested. None of that British small talk nonsense. :P

He was Prussian not Polish

Martha Stewart was born Martha Helen Kostyra to Polish parents

His roots were definitely Polish. He came from a Germanized polish family, Lewinski... but just like Unabomber was American, he was German. Don't take my posts so seriously. :)

I admire the Polish actress Joanna Pacula. She is my definition of a real woman. She has personality, talent, gorgeous looks, along with a perfect physique!
