1886 - 1965
The actress Leopoldine Konstantin achieved the attention of the criticism in 1910 for the first time when she played Maria in the play "Gawan" in Berlin.
Since 1912 she acted on the Berliner Reinhardt stage but after a lawsuit with Reinhardt she changed to Vienna in 1916; not till 1919 she returned to Berlin.
Her first appearances in movies can be back-dated to 1912. She was set
in "Die Hand des Schicksals". Her strong fixing into a gestic and mimic
repertoire - most variations of a ladylike type - led her merely to better
supporting roles at the beginning of the 20s.
Between 1921 and 1933 she didn't shot any movies but concentrated more on the theater. In the late 20s the hard work payed and the criticism reacted bysurprise onto her sensitive realization in the play "Finden Sie, dass sich Constanze richtig verhält?" (1928).
Together with the sound film the demandings to her roles grew. She appeared in "Saison in Kairo" (33), "Prinzessin Turandot" (34) and "Der alte und der junge König" (35).
In 1935 she followed her husband Geza Herczeg to Austria and played
among other things in "Andere Welt" (37).
In 1948 she returned to Vienna but couldn't go on from her earlier successes.
