The Hungarian actor Julius von Szöreghy was born as Gyula Szöreghy in Budapest in 1883 or 1887 (depending on the source).

From 1902 he worked regularly at Hungarian theaters as an actor before he also gained a foothold at the Hungarian silent film.

To his first movies belong "Hazasodik az uram" (13), "Monna Vanna" (16), "Mary Ann" (18), "Twist Olivér" (19) and "A Csodagyerek" (20).

He went to Austria in 1920 where he became a demanded actor as well.

Finally he came to Germany in 1925 where he experienced the height of his film career.
Within no time he became one of the most busiest support actors of the German silent film and because of his appearances he often impersonated comical roles. 
To his most popular movies of the second half of the 20s belong "Schiff in Not" (25), "Die dritte Eskadron" (26), "Eine Dubarry von heute" (27), "Durchlaucht Radieschen" (27) "Einbruch" (27), "Da hält die Welt den Atem an" (27), "Die tolle Lola" (27), "Der Fürst von Pappenheim" (27), "Orientexpress" (27), "Luther" (28), "Die Dame in Schwarz" (28), "Die Dame mit der Maske" (28), "Saxophon-Susi" (28), "Die drei Frauen von Urban Hell" (28), "Nachtgestalten" (29) and "Das Geständnis der Drei" (29).

The transition to the sound film was no problem for him and he continued his career in Germany seamlessly during the 30s. 
He appeared among others in the productions "Das Kabinett des Dr. Larifari" (30), "Das alte Lied" (30), "Grock" (31), "Mein Leopold" (31) and "Nachtkolonne" (32).

When the National Socialist seized the power in Germany he returned to Hungary in 1934 where he remained active as a movie actor till his death.

But his last movie he shot at the locaction of his greatest successes - in Germany - with "Karneval der Liebe" (43).
