   Actor-producer popular in the 1930s who graduated from Wiktor Bieganski's Warsaw Film Institute in 1927 and received his first acting opportunity in 1929 after winning "the contest of the photogenic" organized by the Warsaw Evening newspaper. Since his 1929 debut in Józef Lejtes's film From Day to Day, Brodzisz appeared in several films made by the some of the best directors, including Ryszard Ordyński, Leonard Buczkowski, Michał Waszyński, and Lejtes, specializing in good-natured, good-looking, and often patriotically minded lovers. After his breakthrough film made in 1933, Under Your Protection (Lejtes and Edward Puchalski), he maintained his newly achieved fame with patriotic pictures such as The Young Forest (1934, Lejtes), The Baltic Rhapsody (1935, Buczkowski), and The Heroes of Siberia (1936, Waszyński). In 1931, together with Waszyński and Eugeniusz Bodo, Brodzisz cofounded the film studio B-W-B. After 1945 he was unable to get employment in the state-owned film industry. In 1961 he immigrated to the United States with his wife, actress Maria Bogda.
