Swiss-German prominent stage and screen actor, gifted with enormous stage presence. From his debut in 1906, he became a star in German theater, moving to Hollywood in 1926. Jannings won an Oscar for Best Actor in 1927 for "Way of All Flesh" and in 1928 for "The Last Command." He also played in "The Blue Angel," 1930. His American career could not endure with "talkies" because of his thick German accent.
A supporter of Nazi ideology, he was blacklisted by Allied authorities and prevented from performing his profession after 1945. Jannings released an autobiography in 1928, "How I Got Into Movies." He died of cancer, a lonely, bitter man on 2 January 1950, aged 65, in Strobl, Austria.
