Collect 'Em All #21


Elisabeth Bergner
No. 6 in a series of 50 from Player's Navy Cut Tobacco.
"Born in Vienna on August 22nd, 1900 (IMDb says 1897), Elisabeth Bergner was only fourteen when she went to the Austrian Academy of Dramatic Art. Later she toured the provinces playing leading roles, and she is now recognized as the greatest Shakespearian actress on the Continent. She did not take to film-acting kindly, for after seeing her first picture, she vowed she would never make another. Dr. Paul Czinner, who has directed every film in which she has appeared and who is now her husband, persuaded her to try again and she won success. Catherine the Great and Escape Me Never are her British pictures."
