German actor Wolfgang Preiss first stepped before the cameras in 1942, then disappeared from the view of moviegoers for nearly a dozen years. Preiss gained belated celebrity in the 1960s as the demonic title character in the "Dr. Mabuse" film series, beginning with 1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse (1960). In American films, he tended to be typecast as high-ranking Nazis. Wolfgang Preiss' most prominent assignments in this vein were the roles of Erwin Rommel in Raid on Rommel (1971) and General Von Runstedt in A Bridge Too Far (1977).
