Actress. She appeared in more than 80 feature films in Europe and America, while carving out a significant Broadway career. Raised in a theatrical family, Mady made her first trip to the United States in 1912 to partner her parents in a New York-based German language theater. She made her silver screen debut with the 1916 "Audrey", then went back to Germany for study with Max Reinhardt; she was to make a large number of German movies, mostly "silents", prior to returning to America in 1931. Mady did not make a complete break with Germany until Hitler came to power in 1933; that year was to see her Broadway bow in "A Divine Drudge". Over the next years, Mady shuttled between Hollywood and Broadway, appearing on the Great White Way in around a dozen productions, including several of Shakespeare's plays (most notably, she was Gertrude to Maurice Evans' Hamlet). She created the title role in 1944's "I Remember Mama", and left the screen with the 1948 "All My Sons", an adaptation of Arthur Miller's play. Mady continued her acting career on television up thru 1950, taking rolls on The Philco Television Playhouse, and on The Ford Theatre Hour. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
