    (July 23, 1884-January 3, 1950)
    Birth name was Theodor Friedrich Emil Janenz
    Won the 1927/28 Oscar for Best Actor (The Last Command)
    Acted in 'Othello,' 'Variety,' 'The Last Laugh,' 'Faust' and 'The Patriot'
    He was married three times.
    He was furious that Marlene Dietrich got more notoriety than him when they made 'The Blue Angel' together.
    He won an Oscar for two different movies (make up your mind!)
    He insisted that the Oscar be presented to him prior to the ceremony (this was before the secret ballot) so it wouldn't interrupt his vacation.
    When talking pictures came around, he decided to go back to Germany rather than work on his English.
    The Nazis installed him on the Board of Directors of the Tobis movie studio.
    He was awarded a medal by Goebbels and honored as 'Artist of the State.'
    He starred in many films for the Nazis, including 'Ohm Krüger' (1941), one of the most expensive anti-British propaganda productions of the Third Reich.
    When Berlin fell, he pathetically approached U.S. soldiers holding his Academy Award over his head screaming 'Don't shoot! I have Oscar!'
    He was blacklisted by the Allies after the war.
    Many of his silent films are available on video.
    He won the very first Best Actor Oscar.
    He is the only actor to win an Oscar for a silent movie.
    He claimed that he was forced to make the Nazi propaganda films against his will.
