IL VENDICATORE MASCHERATO.jpg
Viktor Starčić in Il vendicatore mascherato (1963)
Viktor Starčić was a character actor, active in films and television shot in Yugoslavia, including some Italian co-productions, from 1949-1981, with one early title from 1927.

He was born in Raščuk, Ottoman Empire (now Bulgaria), on May 11th 1901.[1]

He began his career as a theatre actor at the age of 18, firstly in regional theatre troupes, then from 1929 in the National Theatre in Belgrade. In 1938, along with other artists, he founded the Art Theatre in Belgrade where he acted and directed and throughout the 1950's he also worked as a professor at Belgrade's Theatre Academy.

From 1949 he began appearing in small character roles in feature films and, a few years later, television. For the next 30 years, until his death, he would work very prolifically in these mediums, while simultaneously continuing to act in the theatre. He was most active in TV movies, most of which, unfortunately, are impossible to find today.

Viktor died in Belgrade on June 1st 1980, aged 79. He is buried in the Alley of Meritorious Citizens at Belgrade's New Cemetery.

No Viktor!
Titles where Viktor is listed as appearing somewhere online, but cannot be found. There always has to be one!
  • Il fornaretto di Venezia (1963) IMDb with no role. Viktor does not appear and is not credited, presumably mixed up with his appearance in the similarly-themed Il vendicatore mascherato the same year.
Notes and sources
1. His biographical information comes from his profile on the Croatian film website Prolog, which seems to be a reliable source.

Gresnica bez greha (1927) credited. From the title I assume his role is that of G. Ilija Dragic, student..

Made when he was 26, this silent film stands alone in Viktor's filmography, coming some 22 years before his next known appearance.

Jezero (1950) credited, but not found, role unknown.

I wasn't able to recognise Viktor in this one, but the copy I found was pretty poor quality so there's a good chance I missed him.

Opstinsko dete (1953) as Sima Nedeljkovic.

He certainly should be credited as he has a fairly major role, but the credits were cut from the copy I found.

Anikina vremena (1954) credited, but not found, role unknown.

Once again I struggled to identify Viktor here. There were several who I thought could be possibilities, hidden under make-up, but none I was happy enough with to make a definite ID.

Dva zrna grozdja (1955) credited, as Antonis.

The credits were in Russian on the copy I found, but from his role it seems a safe guess that he is top of the list here.
