The actress Gusti Huber began her career at the theater in Zurich.
In 1935 she appeared in a movie for the first time called "Tanzmusik" (35). This was the beginning of a successful decade in which she took part in movies like "Savoy-Hotel 217" (36), "Der Mann, von dem man spricht" (37), "Die unentschuldigte Stunde" (37), "Land der Liebe" (37) and "Kleiner Mann - ganz gross!" (38).

During wartime the likeable actress appeared in movies like "Jenny und der Herr im Frack" (41) and "Gabriele Dambrone" (43).
Beside it she had many engagements at the Wiener Burgtheater.

When she got married with an American officer after the war she went to the USA. There she was able to continue her career at televison, among others with the serials "Suspense: Night of Reckoning" (52) and "The Further Adventures of Ellery Queen: Revolution" (59).
Her last feature film was "The Diary of Anne Frank" (59) as Edith Frank, a part she already impersonated successfully on stage before.

Her daughter Bibi Besch (1942-1996) became also a busy actress who had her most successful time in the 70's and 80's. Her granddaughter Samantha Mathis continues the family tradition in the USA.
