Wolfgang Preiss Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Nov 27, 2002

German actor Wolfgang Preiss first stepped before the cameras in 1942, then disappeared from the view of moviegoers for nearly a dozen years. Preiss gained belated celebrity in the 1960s as the demonic title character in the "Dr. Mabuse" film series, beginning with [[Feature~V102382~1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse~themillioneyesofsumuru]] (1960). In American films, he tended to be typecast as high-ranking Nazis. Wolfgang Preiss' most prominent assignments in this vein were the roles of Erwin Rommel in [[Feature~V40111~Raid on Rommel~raidonrommel]] (1971) and General Von Runstedt in [[Feature~V7107~A Bridge Too Far~abridgetoofar]] (1977). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
