Vladimir Fogel
Birth: 1902
Death: Jun. 8, 1929

Actor. One of the first stars of the early Soviet cinema, he made a lasting impression in a sadly brief career. Fogel was born in Moscow. In 1922 he enrolled at the State Institute of Cinematography and became a favorite student of director Lev Kuleshov, who brought him to the screen in the features "The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in the Land of the Bolsheviks" (1924) and "The Death Ray" (1925). His first lead was in Vsevolod Pudovkin's comedy "Chess Fever" (1925). Fogel's matinee idol looks belied his versatility and a preference for edgy character parts and villains. Probably his best known role is as the murderous gold prospector in Kuleshov's "By the Law" (1926). Also notable among his 13 films are "Three Thieves" (1926), "Miss Mend" (1926), "The Girl with the Hatbox" (1927), Pudovkin's "The End of St. Petersburg" (1927), and "Bed and Sofa" (as the reluctant lover, 1927). Suffering from depression, Fogel turned away from acting in 1928 and committed suicide at the age of 27. Most of his work has survived and is available on DVD and the internet. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
