The profoundly sensitive acting of Austrian- British actress Elisabeth Bergner (1897-1986) influenced the German cinema of the 1920’s and 1930’s. She specialized in a bisexual type that she portrayed in Der Geiger von Florenz and in other film and stage roles. Nazism forced her to go in exile, but she worked successfully in the West End and on Broadway.
