Cat. #00159441: KURT KREUGER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce 8x10-inch black and white older age portrait, boldly signed in black fine-tip pen in the 1980s.  In very good condition.  German-born Kurt Kreuger began his film career in the States during World War II, pigeonholed in Nazi roles in films like Arise, My Love (1940), Mah Hunt (1941), Edge of Darkness (1943), Action in the North Atlantic (1943), Sahara (1943), Hangmen Also Die! (1943), The Strange Death of Adolf Hitler (1943), None Shall Escape (1944), The Hitler Gang (1944), and Hotel Berlin (1945).  Tired of villain roles, he returned to Europe with the onset of peacetime, costarring in Preston Sturges' Unfaithfully Yours in 1948.  In 1955, he returned to America, following a serious car accident which damaged his good looks and made leading roles rather difficult to come by.  He went on to fine work, almost invariably back to his bad guy antics, in The Enemy Below (1957) and The St. Valentine's Day Massacre (1967).
