Did You Know?


German leading lady of the 1940's, chiefly remembered for co-starring opposite Heinz Rühmann in the commercially successful hit comedies Quax, der Bruchpilot (1941) and The Punch Bowl (1944). The fact that her husband was half Jewish effectively limited her acting opportunities under the NS regime.
