German actor and director Vadim Glowna has had a prolific career in his home country, mostly in front of the camera. But his work as a director has won him accolades outside of Germany. Glowna launched his acting career in the 1964 made-for-German-TV movie "Der Spassvogel" in 1964 and appeared in dozens of film and television productions after that. He was first exposed to the American market in the 1977 World War II drama "Cross of Iron" starring James Mason and the internationally known Teutonic actor Maximilian Schell. He came back to American two years later with a supporting role in Sidney Sheldon's psycho-sexual thriller "Bloodline," starring Audrey Hepburn. In 1981 Glowna wrote and directed the drama "Desperation City," which won the Golden Camera award at the Cannes Film Festival, and his next film, the drama "Dies rigorose Leben," won honorable mention at the 33rd Berlin International Film Festival. In 2006 Glowna recruited his old compatriot Maximilian Schell to star in "House of the Sleeping Beauties," a drama thriller written, directed by, and starring Glowna as a widower who finds out about a secret establishment where men can spend the night in bed with young, half-drugged, sleeping women. Glowna is also a frequent contributor to the German TV crime dramas "Siska" and "Der Alte."
