CHARACTER ACTORS: Oscar Homolka

Oscar Homolka (1898-1978) is probably best known for playing Russian generals in spy movies. In Sabotage (1936) dir. Alfred Hitchcock, he plays a professional terrorist. Sylvia Sidney also stars. This is in my opinion the most expressionistic movie of Hitchcock. Close-ups of Homolka’s face feature large, his character is at once scary and scared.
SPOILER ALERT
The ending of this contribution gives hints as to the ending of Homolka’s character.
Edited to tunes of Le Sacre du printemps by Igor Stravinsky
