Netflix Movies Starring Anton Diffring

Anton Diffring was a character actor who worked continuously in motion pictures due to his aristocratic, German face and cool, clipped diction, making him ideal for typecasting in British and later American motion pictures as Nazis and other vile, despicable characters. What was ironic about his typecasting as a Nazi is that Diffring, born in Koblenz, Germany, on October 20, 1918, fled Nazi Germany in 1939. He was born into a family that boasted generations of actors, and he studied drama in Berlin and Vienna. At the outbreak of World War II he fled Germany and wound up in Canada, where he was interned as an enemy alien for the duration of the war. It was in Canada where he began his acting career after World War II, working primarily there and in the US before moving to Britain in 1950. Read more on iMDB
