Hrvoje Švob in Odissea (TV mini-series, 1968)
Hrvoje Švob was a small-part actor active in films shot in Yugoslavia, at least between 1956-1978.

An image of his grave found on the Billiongraves website confirms his year of birth as 1908 (IMDb and Wikipedia both incorrectly say 1909) and his year of death as 1991 (Wikipedia gives the date of June 4th in Zagreb). It also names his wife as Augustina and, it would appear, several children.

No other biographical details are currently known.

He only has 7 roles listed on IMDb, spread out over a 22 year period, of which 4 are Italian co-productions.

I have not yet found any undocumented roles for Hrvoje (any tips on how to pronounce his name would be welcome), but given how few known roles he has over such a long period and how small most of his known roles are, he may turn out to be a Yugoslav generico.

Ne okreci se sine (1956) credited as "H. Švob", as Officer checking ID's.

I'm having serious doubts about this identification, so am putting it as uncertain.

Agi Murad il diavolo bianco (1959) as Ally of Ahmed Khan (played by Renato Baldini).

Between the false beard and furry hat this role isn't really of much help for identifying him!

Winnetou - 1. Teil (La valle dei lunghi coltelli) (1963) as Klekih-Petra.

IMDb intimates he should be credited, but he isn't in my German copy. Another role where it's hard to get a handle on how he really looks thanks to the wig.

Odissea (1968 TV mini-series) He appears in episodes 1 (very briefly) and 8, as Femio, the storyteller and only survivor of the climactic massacre.

At least we finally get to see what he really looks like here!

Sumorna jesen (1969 TV series) Episode 2: "Nocne more", credited as "H. Svob".

I searched through this episode several times, but, based on how he looks in Odissea and La corta notte delle bambole di vetro, I could find no-one who could be him. The only older men have darker hair and more of it.
