1904 - 1945
The actress Lizzi Waldmüller (1904-1945) was born in a artist family. Her father was director of a travelling theater. Lizzi Waldmüller took singing lessons as well as acting lessons, which had a very positive consequence for the later sound movie.
But first she played for different Austrian stages in the 20s and finally went to Germany, where she appeared in operettas, among others with her husband, the actor Max Hansen.
In her starting time for the film business she didn't have great success.
She played supporting roles at the side of stars like Heinz Rühmann
and Hans Albers, among others "Lachende Erben" (33) and "Peer Gynt" (34).
Lizzi Waldmüller knew how to bring in a touch of permissiveness and roguish grace into the film during the Nazi time. To her most popular movies during wartime belong "Frau Luna" (41), "Liebeskomödie" (42) and "Es lebe die Liebe" (44).
She was killed during a bomb attack against Vienna on 8th April 1945.
