Harell, Marte

ACTOR (AUSTRIA)
BORN 4 Jan 1907, Wien - DIED 12 Mar 1996, Wien
REAL NAME Schömig, Marte
GRAVE LOCATION Wien: Hietzinger Friedhof, Maxingstraße 15, Hietzing (Gruppe 65, Nummer 2/3/4, Familiengruft)

Daughter of architect Rudolf Schömig and his wife Emilie Passetzky. She started a career as an actress after she married director Karl Hartl on 2 Feb 1930. She was educated at the Reinhardt-seminar and debuted at the Theaters in der Josefstadt when she was already 30.

Her husband became the director of Wien-film and this opened her way to the movies, starting with "Opernball" in 1939. She often played strong women and usually she wasn't able to hide her Viennese accent. She is best remembered as Fiaker-Milli in "Schrammeln" (1944). Her first movie after the war, "Glaube an mich" (1946) was torn apart by the critics. During the fifties and sixties she was in several movies, but she focussed on the theatre.
