A. k. a. Franciska Gaal, born Fanny Zilveritch. Jewish Austrian actress who immigrated to the United States in the late 1930s as the Nazis rose in power in Germany. She returned to Hungary before the end of World War II to be with her ailing mother until the war's end. While she enjoyed a successful film career in Hungary and Germany prior to the war, she retired from film acting completely after appearing in only four films in the United States, although she continue to act on the stage.
