Cast & Crew
Max Hansen Jr.
Max Hansen was a very popular entertainer during the Weimar Republic era, and shot to stardom via his performance as a waiter at the cafe Leopold in the musical comedy Im weissen Rossl. But his cabaret sketches and Jewish origins put a sudden brake on his career when Hitler rose to power. After a spell in Vienna, Hansen then began a new life in Scandinavia. He managed to invent new identities and an Aryan background for himself, but he was always too scared to return to Germany.
