Max Willenz Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Sep 22, 1888
  • Died: Nov 8, 1954

A bald, jovial-looking character actor from Austria, Max Willenz was very busy in Hollywood films during World War II but was, oddly enough, usually cast as a Frenchman (the barkeeper Louis in Dr. Renault's Secret, 1942; the captain in Mademoiselle Fifi, 1944 ) or Russian characters (Dr. Grutschakoff in The Heavenly Body, 1943; Mr. Slepoff in A Likely Story, 1947). In fact, Willenz once again played a Frenchman, a court clerk, in his final film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
