Erich Ponto
Birth: Dec. 14, 1884
Death: Feb. 4, 1957

German Actor. Ponto was a renowned German stage and screen actor. Born in Lübeck, Ponto made his debut on the stage in 1908. In the early 1920s, Ponto began his career in cinema in the film "Hampelmanns Glückstag." He then became a very in-demand supporting actor, playing in such films as "Liebe, Tod und Teufel" (1934), "Das Mädchen Johanna" (1935), "Der Hund von Baskerville" (1936), "Schneider Wibbel" (1939), "Der Feuerteufel" (1940) and "Der Engel mit dem Saitenspiel" (1944). After the Second World War, he had a huge success in the international film business, particularly his impressive part in Carol Reed's "The Third Man" (1949). Ponto remained active on stage and cinema until his death. When he died, he was first buried in Stuttgart, but was later reburied at the Hamburg Nienstedten Cemetery. In March 2007, he was again reburied, this time in the Dresden Tolkewitz. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
