Mini Bio (1)

At the age of eight, Greta Keller studied dancing and later she went to acting school. Her début was in "Pavillon" in Vienna. She also played on Stage with Marlene Dietrich in "Broadway", in which she sang and danced. She had a recording contract with Ultraphon in 1929. Her career as a singer took her from Vienna to Prague and Berlin, where she had a big success with Peter Igelhoff and Peter Kreuder.

Because of her low voice, her repertoire began with Robert-Stolz-Melodie "Adieu, mein kleiner Gardeoffizier" ("Adieu, mon petit officier"). Then she sang songs by Benatzky, Nelson, Kreuder and Igelhoff till Kästner and Tucholsky, as well as American songs. In the 30s, she became a big star even in the USA. She played on Broadway, in New York, made films with Fox Studio, sang on the radio and played with Fred Astaire and Rod McKuen, who wrote "If You Go Away" for her. She also performed "My Way", composed by Paul Anka.
