Helmut Berger was the intriguing and arguably distasteful Peter De Vilbis on our beloved "Dynasty," he of the charm and accent who whisked away our precious Fallon Carrington and helped break poor Jeff Colby's heart. And though you may not be able to translate this Austrian-born actor's resume, he's been a busy boy over the years. He's had many projects dating back to the 1960s.
On his plate this year is "Iron Cross," a war thriller written and directed by Joshua James Newton. The plotline from the IMDb: "Joseph, 78, a holocaust survivor settled in New York, who witnessed the massacre of his family in Poland 1941, travels to Berlin to visit his son Ronnie having turned his back on him for the last five years for marrying Anna. No sooner does Joseph attempt to heal the rift with Ronnie, he swears that living in the apartment below under the false name of Shrager is the now-aging SS commander who committed the atrocity. With little hope of seeing him stand trial, Joseph talks Ronnie into exacting justice -- and vengeance -- and together they set out to kill him."
Roy Scheider plays Joseph. Though Berger's character is not named on the page, we have to wonder if it's Shrager (wouldn't that be fun -- anyone?). The movie has been filming in Poland this year by Calibra Pictures.
