Holland-born character actor Roland Varno's best-known film role was also his first one in the German classic Der Blaue Engle (1930), which starred German sensation Marlene Dietrich. Afterwards, Varno went to Hollywood and appeared with some of the town's best actresses, including Katharine Hepburn. Varno was fluent in several languages and during WWII, he was placed in the Office of Strategic Services and appeared in several propaganda movies, including Hitler's Children. His linguistic versatility came in handy after the war and made him a popular radio performer in radio programs across the country. He made his last movie appearance in Istanbul (1957). Several years into his retirement, Varno's language skills again came in handy on the set of the highly touted miniseries War and Remembrance (1988).
