Biography

Daughter of Heinrich Rainer and Emilie Königsberger

Wife of Clifford Odets

Wife of Robert Knittel

First actor to win the Academy Award twice in a row - unfortunately, it put her so high up on a pedestal that she was never able to live up to the hype. Her career went into a downward spiral after the second win, and it never recovered.

She returned home and studied pharmacology in Europe and ended up enjoying her new profession. She lived to 104 and died of pneumonia in 2014.
