From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Sergei Fedorovich Bondarchuk (Russian: Серге́й Фёдорович Бондарчук; Ukrainian: Сергій Федорович Бондарчук September 25, 1920 – October 20, 1994) was a Soviet, Ukrainian-born film director, screenwriter, and actor.

At the age of 32, he became the youngest Soviet actor ever to receive the top dignity of the People's Artist of the USSR.

Bondarchuk's western fame lies with his epic production of Tolstoy's War and Peace. This film, which on original release totaled more than five hours of cinema, took seven years to complete, and won Bondarchuk, who both directed and acted the role of Pierre Bezukhov, the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1968.

Sergei Bondarchuk is buried in the Novodevichy Cemetery, Moscow.
