O.W. Fischer 1958

581004 Bravo Cover

Austrian actor O.W. Fischer on the cover of Bravo of 4 October 1958. For a time Fischer was one Germany’s most popular actors. By the early 1960s his star began to wane. But shed no tear: in the Third Reich he cheerfully played in an anti-semitic film, Wien 1910, which earned him an entry in Goebbels lost of actors who were to be exempted from war service. Fischer died in 2004 at the age of 89.
