Victor Israel in Sugar Colt (1966)

Victor Israel was a small-part actor, active in Spanish and European films and television from the start of the 1960's until 2008.

He was born José María Soler Vilanova on June 13th 1929 in Barcelona. He was married to Antonia Doñate, with whom he had four children.

His earliest known film role dates from 1961, when he was aged 32. Within a few years he became one of the busiest small-part character actors in Spanish cinema, his bug-eyes (one glass), bad teeth and balding head with wild hair making him instantly recognisable.

From the late 1970's onwards Victor appeared mainly in films shot in Barcelona, including many Catalan language productions.

Victor died in Barcelona on September 19th 2009, aged 80.

He is a well-known face, so it is doubtful there will be many undocumented roles to be found, but, that said, I have come across a couple, so there could always be more.

His biographical details are compiled from various reliable sources, including obituaries.

  • Tierra brutal (1961) IMDb with no role. Not found by myself or Carlos
  • I due sergenti del generale Custer (1965) IMDb with no role. Not found by myself or Dan. The film was shot entirely in Italy, so his appearance in an uncredited bit part would seem unlikely.
  • Uomo avvisato mezzo ammazzato... Parola di Spirito Santo (1972) IMDb as Priest. Not found by myself or Carlos, probably confused with the role played by Riccardo Satta
  • Clara es el precio (1975) IMDb with no role. Not found after several searches
