Carl Raddatz took acting lessons in Mannheim. Willy Birgel brought him to the Nationaltheater in Mannheim. He continued his career in Aachen, Darmstadt and Bremen.
In 1938 the UFA in Babelsberg contracted him for the movie "Urlaub auf Ehrenwort". Soon he found himself a star and more UFA-movies followed. He appeared in the nazi propaganda movies "Wunschkonzert" (1940), "Heimkehr" (1941) and "Stukas" (1941), but his friends knew him as an opponent of the nazi's.
During the fifties he was again succesful with movies like "Herbst" (1955) and "Made in Germany" (1957). His last movie was "Jeder stirbt für sich allein" (1975). In 1972 he received the Bundesverdienstkreuz. His marriage to actress Hannelore Schroth ended in divorce. He was also married to Hildegard Matschke (from 1950 until her death in 1966) and Helga Cartsburg (2001).
