1902 – 1969
Who was Charlotte Ander?
Singer/actress Charlotte Ander was the daughter of German stage/film couple Rudolf Andersch and Ida Perry. Ander was trained at the Berliner Staatstheater. Charlotte was a star in the silent era before making the transition to sound. Her film career started in 1920 with the film Die letzte Stunde and Danton. Innumerable starring roles in silent movies and early talkies with super-stars Emil Jannings, Marlene Dietrich, and Hans Albers followed.
She celebrated her greatest success in 1933 with the role of the record shop assistant Nina in Ein Lied geht um die Welt aka A Song Goes Around the World in which she starred with then popular singer Joseph Schmidt and her mother, Ida Perry. In 1933, after the Nazis came to power, because she was not reinrassig or pure-blood, it became difficult for Charlotte to find work. She went to England and made at least two films including Maid Happy, but soon found roles as hard, or harder, to find in England than they had been in Germany.
