[This article first appeared in Stuttgarter Illustrierte magazine, January 1933]
The following article was published in the German magazine Stuttgarter Illustrierte in 1933 and is currently the only pre-Hollywood news article I have which relates to Luise’s work in European films. The article, titled ‘Actresses’ profiles a number of her German contemporaries, including Rita Georg, Lily Dervas, Lucie Mannheim and Hedwig Bleibtreu. There is also a good quality still photo of Luise in her debut film, Sehnsucht 202. The cover shows German actress Charlotte Susa.
I have yet to translate this article so, instead, I have included scans so that those readers who can speak German may find it interesting.If anyone wants to send a translation then please feel free!
