Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Celia Lovsky (February 21, 1897 - October 12, 1979) was an Austrian American actress. She was born C cilie Lvovsky in Vienna, daughter of Bretislav Lvovsky (1857-1910), a minor Czech opera composer. She studied theater, dance, and languages at the Austrian Royal Academy of Arts and Music. She later moved to Berlin, where she acted in the surrealist plays Dream Theater and Dream Play by Karl Kraus. There she met Peter Lorre, who had seen her in a production of Shakespeare's Othello near Vienna, and would later become her husband. The couple traveled to Paris, London, and the United States. Celia was instrumental in bringing Lorre to the attention of Fritz Lang, leading eventually to Lorre's debut film M in 1931. They lived together for five years before their marriage, and stayed married until 1945, remaining close friends for the rest of Lorre's lifetime.show more
