1878 - 1952
The actor and singer Gustav Matzner was born in Vienna on September 17, 1878. He was primarily at home on the stage and he made his stage debut in 1897 at the Carlstheater in Vienna. There he was also regularly active in operettas, where he was able to use his vocal talent. His greatest success was in the operetta "The Merry Widow".
In the early days of the film Gustav Matzner had few appearances in the so-called Tonbilderns at that time. These were film recordings of the operettas "Der Vogelhändler" (08), "Die lustige Witwe" (08) and "Der fidele Bauer" (08).
