Trivia (5)

Had a career spanning 80 years.
Was a singer in Berlin cabarets in the late 20s - early 30s.
Having only 10 seconds of screen immortality in Casablanca (1942) belies the fact that Bois was considered an acting prodigy in Germany as a young boy. He became a leading comedian on the German stage in the early 1930s under the direction of the great Max Reinhardt and was a hit in the Viennese stage production of "Charley's Aunt" at the Josefstad Theater.
Bois was born in Berlin and began acting in 1907, becoming one of the film world's first child actors, with a role in the silent movie Bauernhaus und Grafenschloß.
In 1934, Bois was forced to leave his home in Nazi Germany for the United States because he was Jewish, where he found work on stage on Broadway.
