ELGA BLINK: BEAUTIFUL GERMAN FILM ACTRESS

This vintage real photo postcard features beautiful German film actress Elga Blink. The IMDb reports that she appeared in sixty-nine films between 1922 and 1951. Blink was blonde and slender. She began her career in silent films. She often played supporting roles. She appeared in comedies, science fiction, drama, and even in a sex education film. She was recognized for her roles in “Comedians of Life” (1924), “Love in Intoxication? (1927), and “Marriage in Trouble” (1929).  At some point she was married to director Georg Jacoby. After the second world war she mostly did stage work until her retirement from the entertainment world. She then worked as a clerk in a Hamburg law firm. This postcard was  published by Iris Verlag as part of a series (No. 620). On the bottom right corner of this postcard is the logo for Sascha-Films. The company was the largest Austrian film production company of the silent film and early sound film era. The film company was established in 1910 in Bohemia and in 1912 it moved to Vienna. Sascha remained in business through the 1960’s although it went through many changes of ownership and company names through the decades.
