Gustav Frohlich was a German actor from the 1920s to the 1960s. He had appeared in a few minor roles in German movies after having been a stage actor, but then he got a minor role in Metropolis in 1927. But Thea von Harbou noticed him on the set and suggested that Fritz Lang give him one of the male leads, which he did, and that made Frohlich a major star. In the early 1930s, he made some movies in Hollywood, but most of his career was spent in Germany. He was banned from German movies from 1941 to 1943, supposedly because he slapped Joseph Goebbels! In all, he made 105 movies and died in 1987 at the age of 85.
