Trivia:

During her enforced exile, she ended up in New York in 1938, living on welfare, washing dishes and, occasionally, working as a nude model. By 1941, she operated a tumbledown cabaret-restaurant, the 'Beggar's Bar'. Upon her return to Germany in 1950, she managed a similar operation in Berlin, the 'Hexenkueche' (Witch's Kitchen'), before being rediscovered for the screen by Fellini. See more »
