MINI BIO:

Vladimir Sokoloff was an impassive, diminutive, brown-haired Russian actor with sneaky eyes and (often) goatee beard. He usually played the evil brains behind the muscle, but occasionally got a more sympathetic role. Sokoloff portrayed almost as many nationalities as J. Carrol Nash, following his arrival in Hollywood late in 1936 after a career in German and French films. He continued acting until his death from a stroke.

Vladimir Sokoloff Quotes:

Old Man: They are all farmers. Farmers talk of nothing but fertilizer and women. I've never shared their enthusiasm for fertilizer. As for women, I became indifferent when I was eighty-three.


Old Man: Come in. You must be thirsty... You must excuse them.
[Mentioning the hiding farmers in the town]
Old Man: They are farmers here. They are afraid of everyone and everything. They are afraid of rain and no rain. The summer may be too hot, the winter too cold.


Vin: What're you gonna do when Calvera comes?
Old Man: At my age, a little excitement is welcome. Don't worry. Why would he kill me? Bullets cost money.
