Anny Ondra

Anny Ondra (May 15, 1903 Tarnów-February 28, 1987 Hollenstedt) also known as Anna Sophie Ondrakova, Any Ondra, A. Ondráková, Anny Ondráková, Anna Ondráková or Anna Sophie Ondráková was a French actor and film producer.

Anny Ondra began her acting career in her native Czechoslovakia, where she starred in a number of successful films before being discovered by German director Alfred Hitchcock. She went on to star in his film "Blackmail" in 1929, which marked Hitchcock's first sound film and Ondra's introduction to the English-speaking world.

Despite her success in "Blackmail," Ondra struggled with English and her thick Czech accent, leading her to take a break from acting and focus on producing for several years. She eventually returned to acting, but her career never quite recovered from the setback.

Outside of her work in film, Ondra was known for her adventurous personal life, which included a brief affair with Prince George, Duke of Kent. She also enjoyed sports and was a skilled tennis player.

Anny Ondra passed away in 1987 at the age of 83, but her legacy as one of the early stars of European and English-language cinema lives on.
