Description:
Dorothy Clara Louise "Dolly" Haas (April 29, 1910 – September 16, 1994) was a singer and an entertainer who often appeared on Broadway.

Life and work

Haas was born in Hamburg, Germany to Charles Oswald Haas, a bookseller of British origin, and Margarete Maria (née Hansen). Her father was an accomplished actor in German cinema before moving to the United States so she knew both English and German languages.

A red head, she began as a cabaret artiste and approached a well known German producer to get her on screen. A year later he gave her a star role in one of his films. She was an important actress in German cinema in the 1930s. Although she did not appear in many U.S. films, she had a role in the high-profile Alfred Hitchcock film I Confess in 1953.

Her first marriage was to German-born film director John Brahm, who at one point was resident director for acting troupes as Deutsches Theater and the Lessing Theater, both in Berlin. A naturalized U.S. citizen, she married her second husband, famed caricaturist Al Hirschfeld in Baltimore, Maryland in 1943. They had a daughter, Nina (born 1945). Haas died from ovarian cancer in New York, New York, aged 84.
