Hungarian actress Käthe von Nagy (1904-1973) started as the ‘Backfish’ of German films of the late 1920’s. In the early 1930’s she became a fashionable and charming star of the German and French cinema.



Hans Albers (1891 – 1960) was a superstar of the German cinema between 1930 and 1945. He already had a rich career in silent film, often playing the suave crook, as in the crime and adventure films with Luciano Albertini. He was also one of the most popular German singers of the twentieth century. His song Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins (On the Reeperbahn at half past midnight) is the unofficial anthem of Hamburg’s neighborhood of St. Pauli, famous for its brothels, music and night clubs.

The profoundly sensitive acting of Austrian-British actress Elisabeth Bergner (1897 -1986) influenced the German cinema of the 1920’s and 1930’s. She specialized in a bisexual type that she portrayed in Der Geiger von Florenz and in other film and stage roles. Nazism forced her to go in exile, but she worked successfully in the West End and on Broadway.

In spite of her French name, Lucy Doraine (1898-1989) was a major Austrian-Hungarian actress in the Austrian and German cinema of the 1920s. When she moved to Hollywood, the revolution of the sound film finished her career.

Als Darstellerin werde ich hin und wieder für interessante Projekte eingesetzt. Anfang 2016 habe ich zum Beispiel für die Band BAD TEMPER JOE - DOUBLE TROUBLE gedreht. Seit einigen Wochen ist das Video online.
