The actress Ressel Orla already appeared in the early 10's in first movies. Among them are comedies like "Die Firma heiratet" (14), "Der Stolz der Firma" (14) and "Blindekuh" (15).
Because of her great success she retired from the theater and dedicated to the new medium film.

Her first appearances in the film business were determined by comical roles with which she was very successful. When she impersonated a dramatic role in the movie "Die Sünde" in 1918 she was also able to assert in this part of work and her reputation gain in more importance by the critics.

Today the name Ressel Orla is especially well-known because of her appearance in Fritz Langs movie "Die Spinnen" (19) where she played a villain at Carl de Vogt's side. The movie anticipated the figure of Indiana Jones of the modern times, so to speak.

Likewise under the direction of Fritz Lang she played in the movie "Halbblut" (19) where she again impersonated a negative character. 

When the talkies called the tune in the cinemas, Ressel Orla had to retire from the film business owing to illness.As an experienced theater actress and talented singer she surely would had been able to give an impetus in the 30's, but the destiny chose an other way.
After a long illness she died at the age of 41.
