1896 - 1988
The petite actress Johanna Hofer was an impressive interpreter who nearly exclusively orientated her creative urge to the theater. There she had great successes and acquired soon a considerable name.
She got married with the actor and director Fritz Kortner in 1924 and both influenced the Berliner theater in the next years.
Johanna Hofer already made her film debut in 1926 with the silent movie
"Die Schwestern vom Roten Kreuz", it followed "Die Ausgestossenen" (27),
but her short excursion to the world of the film didn't convince her to
continue her career in this profession.
Johanna Hofer impersonated in the USA small parts in three movies called
"Hitler's Madman" (43), "Above Suspicion" (43) and "Hotel Berlin" (45).
To her last cinematical works belong "Der Fussgänger" (73), "Gross
und Klein" (80) and "Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss" (82).
