Happy Birthday to
It's a wonderful thing, reaching 100, and I'm sure you'd all like to join me to celebrating the centenary this complex and celebrated German star of the 1930s. She will forever be immortalised for being the first person to win back to back acting Oscars (for The Great Ziegfield and The Good Earth) although sadly the roles dried up soon after this extraodinary run, partly due to her own casting demands.
As it's a special birthday here's a couple of clips of Luise in action:
The first shows her tearful reaction to Florenz Ziegfield second marriage
And the second (spoiler alert!!!) shows her deathbed scene in The Good Earth
