Hugo Haas
Birth: Feb. 18, 1901
Brno
Jihomoravsky (South Moravia), Czech Republic
Death: Dec. 1, 1968
Vienna (Wien), Austria

Actor. Born in Brno, in what is now the Czech Republic, he became a star of the National Theater of Prague, where his greatest success was as Dr. Galen in Karel Kapec's play "The White Disease". When the Nazis invaded his homeland in 1938, Haas fled to the United States and worked as a character player in films such as "A Bell For Adano" (1945), "The Private Affairs of Bel Ami" (1947), "Fiesta" (1947), and "King Solomon's Mines" (1950). He also directed himself in several campy low-budget melodramas, among them "The Other Woman" (1954). His brother was composer Pavel Haas, who died at the Auschwitz concentration camp. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
