Kurt Kreuger

22 July 1916 to 11 July 2006

Appearing in many war films throughout the 40s, including Sahara (1942) and Paris Underground (1945), Kreuger's height, blonde hair and blue eyes made him the quintessential German officer for casting directors. However, becoming increasingly frustrated with being typecast, Kreuger eventually left the industry for a profitable career in real estate.
