My father was an ardent socialist for many years.
It was one of the great chances in my life to become a Dumont actor.
A Dumont actor was considered to be too stilted - the way we Dumont actors used to speak.
It is a great deal of difference to receive an honorary title or a title in his profession.
At the end of my life, I have achieved belated fame and recognition in the city of my birth.
Directors and producers were afraid of a Dumont actor while at the same time they admired him.
From that moment on I knew my profession in life was and has remained until today an actor's life.
To be a Dumont actor was considered to be a great honor for an actor, yet it also had its disadvantages.
The interest of my mother was more in the entertainment field. She loved to go to concerts and to the theatre.
Especially for my father it was a great change. He used to be a socialist and even a member of the socialist party. But then he became an orthodox Jew.
