Rudi Godden

Rudi Godden (April 18, 1907 Berlin-January 4, 1941 Berlin) otherwise known as Johannes Heesters, Rudi Godden, Carola Hohn & Mady Rahl or Heesters, Johannes, Godden, Rudi, Höhn, Carola & Rahl, Mady was a German actor and singer.

He was born in Berlin and started his career in the 1920s as a stage actor and singer. In the 1930s he became one of the most popular performers in German cinema, appearing in over 100 films. He often played romantic leads and his charming and suave screen persona made him a sex symbol of the time. During World War II, he continued to work in films, despite being conscripted into the German Army. He later claimed that he had only stayed in Germany during the war because he did not want to leave his elderly mother. After the war, he continued his career and became a beloved icon of German entertainment. However, controversy arose in the 2000s when he admitted to having performed for Nazi troops during the war, although he denied ever being a member of the Nazi party. He died in 2011 at the age of 108, having lived a long and colorful life as one of Germany's most enduring entertainers.
