CULT role

kultowy =/= cult

"The term cult film itself was first used in the 1970s to describe the culture that surrounded underground films and midnight movies, though cult was in common use in film analysis for decades prior to that.

Cult films trace their origin back to controversial and suppressed films kept alive by dedicated fans"

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_film

Pieczka was iconic. A month or so ago I watched the tv-series version of Ziemia Obiecana (sort of again) and his was one of my favorite characters (along with his daughter, Bożena Dykiel in another iconic role)

You didn`t answer my previous question. Again: do you mean he was never a cult actor in his career???

You are a cult follower of PO and other traitors scumbacks. I wonder why are you broken.

Hydrozagadka might be a cult film... did he do more weird, non-mainstream movies that people enjoy for weird reasons? Maybe Jańcio Wodnik???

But overall he's an iconic actor (the role in czterej pancerzy sounds more iconic... it was a mainstream production enjoyed by a mainstream international audience.

follower of PO

Yes, coz they are decent, intelligent and reliable. Complete opposite of PiS and naziopolacken. Ha!

the role in czterej pancerzy sounds more iconic..

Ok, let it be. :))

Pancernych. :):)

Well, the series was quite gripping 50 years ago but today it suits kids and teenagers rather than adults. It is an action war flick in which one tank crew solely wins the war for Poland and the USSR against hordes of nasty Germans.

"Vier Panzersoldaten und ein Hund" - 93% of watching Germans liked it.

Adventure based series, very moralistic with regard how to treat your enemy at times, which is when the crew is at odds with one another.

Having "Janek Kos" as the central character of the series, with two women flirting/interested in him. While leaving room for other characters to romantisize as well.

+the dog filling the role of something very similar as Lessie or Rex movies/series.

It had propaganda hidden in it carefully to work subcounciously on viewers mind. (Especially Soviet-Polish friendship)

Yet everyone watched it to enjoy it tho

Yes, coz there was nothing better at the time - the choice was heavily limited. The Dirty Dozen film with Lee Marvin from 1967 was shown in Polish cinemas about 12 years later.

Jerzy Urban is dead. Famous for his protruding ears... or something else?

Famous for his protruding ears...

On the one hand one of the most widely loathed people in the PRL due to his position as spokesman(?) though a bunch of people told me individually they kind of liked him....

Then he published NIE for years (is that still around?)

A Good opportunity to clear this up. Was he a Pole or was he a Jew?

Kind of nosense. In today contex if he would have been shot for being a traitor to Poland they could say it is anti-semitism. Both doesn't cut it. It is OK if the times are good in the times of strife that casue problems.

No... russian distinguishes between "ethnic russian" (russkij) and "citizen of the russian federation" (rosjanin).
Poland never made such a distinction that I know of so Polak means "ethnic Pole" (whether a citizen of Poland or not) or "citizen of Poland" (including those who aren't ethnic Poles). Saying someone born in Poland and whose first language was Polish and who was a Polish citizen isn't Polish is kind of a.... logical non-starter.

The question of whether he was a traitor or not is totally unrelated.

russian also distinguishes between "ethnic Jew" and "follower of Judaism" which is also handy distinction as Urban might have been the former but he wasn't the latter.

What kind of meaning does that have for a peasant like you?

Urban was born 1933 to a Jewish family in Łódź.

@Cojestdochlery,
It is possible to be of Polish birth and nationality, yet Jewish by religion:-)

Ask any assimilated Jew! Were you to ask Roman Polanski, Julian Tuwim or even half-Jews such as Jan Brzechwa (author of the best-known tongue twister in the Polish language), they would all declare themselves proud Poles of Jewish heritage.

Sure, but in the context of all that going on about. Like certain Americans (Jewish) have issue with Poles having issues with other Poles(Polish citizens). Like Isreal that have issues and even brazen claims with what were Polish citizens doing (or not) to other Polish ctizens.

So my question is what the hell is going on and how to make a sense out of it.
So far seems like a magical trick played on people to get them conned - now you see us, now you don't. In the context where I can gain something I'm a Jew if I stand to loose I'm not. If you go after me for reasons I can hide behind a sheld by claiming anti-semities are after me, and so on.

That is BS, you can get away with it in the USA where Jews are not that many and well off.

What kind of meaning does that have for a peasant like you?

To me it means nothing. In a historical perpective Jews and aritsocunts like you were in cahoots to enslave and con peasants. If anything you and Jews should pay me a compensation. If one belive in such things and seems to me you and some Jews do think that Jews should get money out of Poles majority of which are of peasant stock and had been exploited by a team of nobles and Jews.

A few days ago a famous pop singer J. Połomski died. He specialised in romantic pop ballads. Not my fave kind of music but I didn`t change the station when i heard his songs on the radio. He became popular in 1960s and died at about 90.

Here is a collection of his best songs:
