Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kaaren Verne (6 April 1918 - 23 December 1967), was a German-born actress. Sometimes billed as Karen Verne, she was originally a stage actress and member of the Berlin State Theatre. Kaaren Verne was born in Berlin and christened Ingeborg Greta Katerina Marie-Rose Klinckerfuss, She fled the Nazis in 1938 and made her English-language movie debut in the 1939 British film Ten Days in Paris. The following year she settled in Hollywood. At first, the studios tried to play down her German heritage by briefly changing her professional name to Catherine Young, but after America's entry into World War II, the publicity value of a Teutonic actress who had turned her back on Naziism was too good to avoid. During this period, Verne was the wife of Peter Lorre, with whom she appeared in All Through the Night.show more
