1888 - 1953
The actor Walter Jankuhn made his film debut with the silent movie "Lotte" (28). Already one year later followed a great success with "Dich hab ich geliebt" (29), where he also appeared as a singer. With the song of the same name he landed a big hit.
His film appearances kept seldom in the following years in spite of this early success. To his movies of the 30's belong "Stürmisch die Nacht" (30), "Die Marquise von Pompadour" (31) and "Zigeunerblut" (34).
