Elisabeth Bergner - a forgotten star

Paris Calling is a very good WWII thriller about the French Underground, It stars Elisabeth Bergner. Almost forgotten now, she gained great fame on the stage in Germany until she and her husband fled Nazi Germany. She had almost unbelievably large and soulful eyes and portrayed an innocent and defenseless persona. Theater critic Alexander Woollcott once said she was "probably the ablest actress living today."
