Cornell Borchers


Born - 16 March 1925, Silute, Lithuania
Died - 12 May 2014

Appealing, sensitive, quite tall brunette actress with prominent cheekbones. Born Cornelia Bruch, she began appearing in German films in post-war years, but international stardom beckoned, often in weepies, after her BAFTA award for her performance in The Divided Heart (1954). After a debut in Martina (1949), she had a fairly brief star career, which included roles in The Big Lift (1950), Dark Eyes (1951), Adventures in Vienna (1952), Maxie (1954), Oasis (1955), Never Say Goodbye (1956), Istanbul (1957), Above All Things (1958) and Doctor Without Scruples (1959), her last. Twice married and divorced, she left acting in 1962 to raise her daughter.
