Despite his success as an actor, Arno's life was marked by tragedy. He and his wife were both Jewish, and they fled Germany in 1933 after the Nazis rose to power. They eventually settled in the United States, where Arno continued to work in film but was unable to achieve the same level of prominence as he had in Europe. Arno's wife died in 1958, and he himself passed away in 1975 after suffering a stroke.
