Remembering Stole Aranđjelović
Stojan Aranđjelović was born on June 12, 1930 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He became one of the greatest character actors in Yugoslavian film history. Stojan first appeared on film in 1950 and his career would continue until 1993. He often appeared under his nickname Stole Aranđjelović and made more than 120 film and TV appearances in his more than 40 year career. When the Karl May Films began using Yugoslavia for their settings his talents were called upon and he appeared as a villain in three of the Winnetou movies: “Frontier Hellcat” and “Last of the Renegades” both in 1964 and “Rampage at Apache Wells” (1965). In 1983 he received a lifetime achievement award from the Yugoslavian Film Commission. Stojan died in Belgrade on April 8, 1993. Today we remember Stojan Aranđjelović on what would have been his 80th birthday.
