Bergner was one of Germany s most renowned theater and film actresses, known for her androgynous, pants wearing roles (something pretty unheard of at the time).

During a screening of her movie The Rise of Catherine the Great in Berlin, Nazis staged a riot as part of their larger campaign to ban Jewish art.

She returned to Europe after the war, acting in the 1973 film Der Fu g nger ( The Pedestrian ), which was nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe. A Berlin city park was named for Bergner.
