ELGA BRINK : RARE PORTRAIT : BEAUTIFUL GERMAN SILENT FILM ACTRESS : RPPC

This vintage real photo postcard features beautiful German film actress Elga Brink (1905-1985). At the time that this photograph was taken, she was 23 years-old. This photograph is uncommon. The IMDb reports that Brink appeared in sixty-nine films between 1922 and 1951. Brink was blonde and slender. She began her career in silent films. She often played supporting roles. She appeared in comedies, science fiction, drama, and even in a sex education film. She was recognized for her roles in “Comedians of Life” (1924), “Love in Intoxication? (1927), and “Marriage in Trouble” (1929).  At some point she was married to director Georg Jacoby. After the second World War she mostly did stage work until her retirement from the entertainment world. She then worked as a clerk in a Hamburg law firm. The logo on the bottom right of the image reveals the name of the postcard’s publisher. Unfortunately, I can not decipher the initials. Print on the reverse of the postcard advertises ‘Union Bromographic”. The firm was located in Milan, Italy. Perhaps the company was a postcard distributor. The card was postmarked in Genoa, Italy and mailed to Venice. The card has an Italian stamp. Everything about this postcard is Italian; except Elga Brink. This photo postcard portrait captures the beauty of Elga Brink. She is very expressive in this photograph. She looks pensive. Note the light crease in the lower left hand corner of the card. Overall,this vintage postcard is in good condition (see scans).
