Bressart made his stage debut in 1914 and his film debut in 1928. Going to the U.S. after being forced out of Germany in 1936, Bressart starred in his first American film, "Swanee River," in 1939 with Al Jolson and Andrea Leeds. He went on to a successful career in film and during the filming of "My Friend Irma," he died from leukemia. Bressart can still be seen in long shots during the film, although he was replaced by Hans Conried.
