The actor Alexander Golling began his theater career in Munich from 1924 and gave guest performances in Heidelberg, Leipzig and Berlin in the following years.

From 1935 he became soon established as a popular support actor (often as a villain) in movies like "Einer zuviel an Bord" (35), "Der Kaiser von Kalifornien" (36), "Der Dschungel ruft" (36), "Der Tiger von Eschnapur" (38), "Das indische Grabmal" (38) and "Sergeant Berry" (38).

During the wartime he only appeared seldom in front of the camera, so in "Kameraden" (41), "Ritt zwischen den Fronten" (41) and "Geheimakte W.B. 1" (42).
His main activity was clearly aimed at the theater in those years, he also was director of the Bavarian Staatsschauspiel from 1938 to 1945.
As a sympathizer of the National Socialists he became the nickname "the brown theater prince of Munich", for which he was blamed after the war.

His career got only slowly started after the war, his past during the wartime was a great handicap.
Finally he was able to gain a foothold again in the 50's and impersonated numerous support roles in popular productions.
To his well-known movies of the 50's and 60's belong "Vom Teufel gejagt" (50), "Gestatten, mein Name ist Cox" (55), "Königin Luise" (57) "Mein Schulfreund" (60), "Die Gentlemen bitten zur Kasse" (66), "Caligula" (66) and "Sturm im Wasserglas" (69).

His career ended slowly in the 70's. To his last cinematical works belong "Alle Menschen werden Brüder" (73), "The Odessa File - Die Akte Odessa" (74), "Karl May" (74) and "Das Wunder des heiligen Florian" (79).
