Gertrud Kückelmann was the daughter of the physician H.W.L. Kückelmann
and the actress Anna Kückelmann-Guba. She went to school in
Munich and was educated as a dancer. She became a member of
the Müchner Kammerspiele in 1949 and performed there for twenty
years. She also had her first small movie part in 1949. During
the fifties she played in many movies. Her talent was undisputed,
but she was considered to be 'difficult'. She often fell out
with her collegues because her demands were so high. When she
had trouble getting new parts in Western Germany she appeared
in the East German movie "Spielbank-Affäre" in 1957. Her movie
career was over now, allthough she appeared in her brother Nobert
Kückelmann's movie "Die Angst ist ein zweiter Schatten" in 1974.|
In 1968 she married director Fritz Schuster, but a divorce followed in 1971. In 1969 her contract at the threatre in München wasn't renewed and for a while she worked as a nurse. In 1974 she returned to television and to the theatre.
Two weeks after her 50th birthday she killed herself by jumping out of the window of her brother Norbert's fourth stock appartment in Schwabing, Munich. She left no suicide note, but the autopsy showed that she was suffering from cancer of the intestines.
was directed by Kortner, Fritz
