Fritz Nathan Kohn was an actor in German theater and films by the mid teens, and he directed himself in Gregor Marold and Else Von Erlenhof after World War One. He stuck to acting in the '20s, appearing in such notable films as Robert Wiene's Orlacs Hande (aka The Hands of Orlac) and G.W. Pabst's Die Buchse Der Pandora (aka Pandora's Box). In the early '30s he directed and co-scripted Der Brave Sunder (aka The Upright Sinner) and So Ein Mudel Vergisst Man Nicht but then had to flee the Nazis.
