The actress Friedel Schuster had first successes as an operetta singer before she made her film debut in 1931. She already impersonated the leading role in her first movie, the operetta filming "Viktoria und ihr Husar" (31).
Although the movie became a huge success she only took part in only one more movie in the next years in "Ich und die Kaiserin" (33). This movie remained her last one for the time being. Her appearances on stage also diminished in the next years.
Only after the end of World War II she continued her artistic career. First she was active as a dubbing actor for American actresses like Paulette Goddard or Myrna Loy as well as some animation movies of Walt Disney. Finally she also appeared in front of the camera again.
To her movies of the 50s and 60s belong "Räubergeschichte" (54), "Träume von der Südsee" (57), "Die Liebe des Jahres" (59), "Wir sind noch einmal davongekommen" (61),"Junger Herr für Jenny" (64) and "Der Mann mit dem Glasauge" (66).
Her last movie came in 1971 into being with "Der trojanische Sessel" (71).
