    Käthe von Nagy: Born Kató Nagy in Szabadka, Austria-Hungary (now Subotica, Vojvodina, Yugoslavia) April 4, 1904.

    Käthe von Nagy wanted to get married at the age of 16, therefore, her parents put her in the Santa Chrisitana Convent, near Vienna. After that, she worked in her father's office and besides started to secretly write short stories for newspapers. In Budapest, she studied acting, dancing and singing, but her parents were not very happy. In 1926, she went to Berlin to make movies. She got a small part in the film "Männer von der Ehe" (1927) and Wien, du Stadt meiner Träume" (1927) ("Vienna, City of My Dreams"). In 1930, she went into talkies with "Der Andere" (1930). She also made the French version of "Bomben auf Monte Carlo" (1931). In the German film, Anna Sten played the part. In 1938, she played in "Finale" ("Die Unruhigen Mädchen", "Les Sourires de Vienne"). After that she made 6 films in France. Her last one was Die Försterchristl (1952), alongside Johanna Matz. She died of cancer in Hollywood in 1973.

    Brigette Helm: Although best known for her role in 1927's Metropolis, I think these pictures are mostly from the 30s.

She worked in Budapest and Vienna as a dancer. On stage, she was in Berlin and Vienna. She also made close to a hundred movies - silents and talkies. She was the first female star of Austria. She was married three times. The last one was Swiss Dr. Carl Spycher, with which she had one son, the jazz musician, Pierre Spycher. She lived with her family near Bern, Switzerland, where she died at the age of 105 years young (Born 1895, died 2000).
