1880 - 1928
The actor Karel Noll was a very popular national actor in Czechoslovakia who entertained a huge audience with his humorous roles.
The Czeck film business made already use of Karel Noll's talent in 1920. To his first movies belong "Cerven a Karkulka" (20) and "Kruz u potoka" (21).
After movies like "Lucerna" (25) and "Velbloud uchem jehly" (26) followed
Karel Noll's biggest success. He interpreted the literary figure "Der brave
Soldat Schwejk" for the film for the first time and went down in film history
with this role.
When Karel Noll took part in the Austrian movie "Das Feldgericht von Gorlice" (27) this was his first foreign movie and there was the justified hope that he would be able to gain a foothold in Europe.
But the destiny turned into an other direction and snatched a highly
gifted comedian from the film in 1928 - Karel Noll was only 48 years old.
