Biography

Dortmund, Germany
A vivacious and very attractive blonde supporting actress and occasional singer, Frieda Elfriede Benkhoff was the equivalent of a German Eve Arden. Even though she rarely commanded a leading role, she was an effervescent, perpetually wisecracking scene stealer, who invariably had the last word, whether as friend of the heroine, gossipy aunt or nosy parker.

She made her first theatrical appearance in "Don Carlos" at Dortmund's Stadttheater in 1925. Read more...
