Off screen their lives ran a gambit from accusations of murder, learning to speak Hindustani, and helping invent a torpedo jamming system that laid the foundation for developing Bluetooth and other technologies. Elisabeth Bergner (1897 1986) Elisabeth Bergner. (United States Library of Congress;s Prints and Photographs division via JTA) The Austrian actress Elisabeth Bergner was nominated for a best actress Oscar in 1935 and even may have helped create the titular character in the film All About Eve. 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). After moving to London, she helped fellow actors escape Nazi Germany. 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. Bergner and her husband, director Paul Czinner, soon fled to the US, where she starred with Laurence Olivier in As You Like It (1936). 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. Libby Holman (1904 1971) Libby Holman. (Confetta Flickr via JTA) As an openly bisexual American actress who was charged with murdering her husband (inspiring three films), Libby Holman led a controversial life. Even though it was ruled a suicide, the death of Holman s husband, Zachary Smith Reynolds, tarnished her reputation and coverage of the incident was marred by anti Semitism. She was also the youngest woman to graduate from the University of Cincinnati and went against social standards by playing shows with African American musicians. Holman befriended Martin Luther King Jr. and helped pay for his 1959 trip to India to study the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. In addition to her involvement in the civil rights movement and taking part in the experimental film Dreams That Money Can Buy (1947), Holman is largely remembered as a stage actress. She has been credited as well for popularizing the strapless dress, which was her signature look. Ruby Myers (1907 1983) Ruby Myers. (Bollywoodirect Medium via JTA) Ruby Myers, who went by the stage name Sulochana, was an Indian actress of Middle Eastern origin who defied the social norms of her era by starring in early Hindi silent films. During the late 1700s, Jews from Iraq, Syria, and other parts of the Ottoman Empire came to India, establishing the Baghdadi Jewish community. Some of the first women to act in Indian movies came from this Jewish Diaspora.Myers, who was working as a telephone operator when she was discovered, was hesitant to pursue acting. But she went on to star in films including Typist Girl (1926) and Wildcat of Bombay (1927), in which she played eight characters. When talkies took over, she learned Hindustani.
