Curt Jurgens ACTOR


Curt Jurgens was born on December 13th, 1915 in Solln near Munich (now Munich), Bavaria, Germany with the birth name, Curd Gustav Andreas Gottlieb Franz Jürgens to a German father and French mother and had two older twin sisters.  He is known as one of the most successful European film actors of the 20th Century.  Many of his film credits bill him as either Curt or Curd. 
After the end of World War II, Jurgens left Germany and moved to Austria becoming a citizen there and also spent some time living in France.  After completing college, he began pursuing a career as a journalist, but soon was encouraged by his first wife to pursue a career as an actor instead.

He began his first introduction to acting working as a stage actor on the Vienna stage and soon followed with a number of film roles in America and overseas.  He appeared on the screen in such films as, "The Devil's General" (1955), "And God Created Woman" (1956), "The Enemy Below" (1957), "The Longest Day" (1962) and "Lord Jim" (1962) amongst others on the big screen and television as well.  

Even though he had quite a successful career as a film actor, he always considered himself a stage actor and never neglected his love of the stage.  He often returned to perform at the Vienna stage and also was involved in directing and writing several screenplays.
Curt Jurgens married a total of five times throughout his lifetime.  His first wife was Lulu Basler whom he wed on June 15th, 1937 and they were together until 1947.  His second wife was Judith Holzmeister from 1947 through 1955.  His third time to marry was Eva Bartok from 1955 through 1957 and they had one child together, whom she later claimed was actually fathered during a brief affair with Frank Sinatra.  He then chose to marry again for a fourth time to Simone Bicheron from 1958 through 1977.  His fifth and final time down the aisle was on March 21st, 1978 to Margie Schmitz and they remained together until Jurgens passed away on June 18th, 1982 after suffering from a heart attack in Vienna Austria where he was interred in the Central Cemetery.
In 1975, Curt Jurgens wrote an autobiography titled, "Sixty and Not yet Wise" which was published in 1976.  He was also ranked #2 posthumously in 2005 by a German tabloid, "Bild" as one of the men with the most sex appeal ever.
