The actor Eduard Linkers learnt his acting abilities at the Viennese Volkstheater and afterwards appeared at different Austrian stages.
He already made first cinematical experiences in the 30's with "Katharina, die Letzte" (36) and "Peter im Schnee" (37). 
But with the rise of the National Socialists in Austria his career came to an abrupt end because his father was a Jew. In those years he kept his head above water as a language teacher in Prague.

He was able to continue his film and theater career after the war, first in Czechoslovakia with the movies "Nadlide" (46), "Krakatit" (47) and "Kariera" (48), from the 50's also in German-speaking movies like "Hollandmädel" (53), "Es geschah am 20. Juli" (55), "Kitty und die grosse Welt" (56), "Madeleine und der Legionär" (58) and "Der Haustyrann" (59).

It followed many other engagements in the 60's and 70's in front of the camera and his international appearances increased as well.
To his well-known movies of those years belong "Wernher von Braun" (60), "Der letzte Fussgänger" (60), "Begegnung in Salzburg" (64), "The Defecter" (66), "Deep End" (71), "Alle Menschen werden Brüder" (73), "Steppenwolf" (74), "Die Marquise von O…" (76) and "Son of Hitler" (78).

His last cinematical works came in the 80's into being with "Malevil" (81), "Fausses notes" (82) and the serial "Forsthaus Falkenau" (89).
