Hans Brausewetter was a pupil to Hubert Heinrich, who was a director at the Lessingtheater. He was engaged at several German theatres before he made his first movie in 1921, "Der Marquis von Bolibar". He was able to continue his career when sound movies were introduced and appeared in "Das Flötenkonzert von Sanssouci" (1930) and "Paradies der Junggesellen" (1939).

He was shortly imprisoned by the nazi's in a concentration camp, but he was released after the actress Käthe Haack had pleaded for him with Goebbels. He died during the siege of Berlin after he was hit by a shell.
