From Holland with love: twelve postcards with Lien Deyers

Film historian Egbert Barten of the Geoffrey Donaldson Institute brought us newly acquired postcards for EFSP. In yesterday's film special on Riso Amaro/Bitter Rice (1949), some of the postcards were from the collection of the Geoffrey Donaldson Institute. Today we continue with a post on 12 of his recently acquired postcards of Lien Deyers (1910-1965). As a young girl, she was discovered by director Fritz Lang who gave her a part in Spione/Spies (1928). She acted in a stream of late silent and early sound films. After 1935 her star faded rapidly and her life ended in tragedy.
