After she studied singing Edith Schollwer was engaged as a soubrette in Berlin from 1927 onwards. Her movie debut was in "Die Firma Heiratet" (1931). She made only three more movies until 1937 and then not a single one until 1951.

During the fifties she was in more movies than before. Because of several nose operations she looked completely different many times. She also continued her work on the stage. After 1945 she performed at the Hebbel-theater in Berlin and in 1961 she moved to the Renaissance-Theater. She was one of the permanent members of Günter Neumann's cabaret "Insulanern" (1948-1964).

Edith Schollwer was married to the chamber singer Carl Jöken, who died in 1974. She continued in Berlin until she died in 2002.
