Gert Frobe was born Karl-Gerhart Froeber. While he's best known in the U.S. as 007 nemesis Goldfinger from the 1964 film of the same name, this gruff, stocky ex-musician, who turned to an acting career in his late 20s, played dozens of character roles-mostly heavies, and brutish ones at that-in European productions (mostly unseen here) during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. He was especially memorable as the master villain Bellamy in the 1961 German adaptation of Edgar Wallace's The Green Archer for which he was top-billed (a rare occurrence). His English-language films include The Berliner (1948), The Longest Day (1962), Is Paris Burning (1966), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), $ (1971), Ten Little Indians (1975), and Bloodline (1979).
