Actor George Voskovec made his first stage appearance in his native Czechoslovakia, where he also made his first film, Powder and Gas (1930). Emigrating to America after Czechoslovakia fell to Hitler's armies, Voskovec quickly gained a Broadway reputation as an actor, playwright, and musical composer. Though he spoke with very little accent, Voskovec was frequently cast as foreigners, usually Teutonic or Slavic in nature. George Voskovec maintained a busy schedule to the end of his life, appearing in films (1980's Somewhere in Time was his last), plays, and a lot of television; in the latter medium, Voskovec was seen on a regular basis as Fritz the butler (his last role) on the 1981 TV series Nero Wolfe.
