German actor CONRAD VEIDT was born in Berlin. Best known for his roles in Casablanca and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Veidt also holds the distinction of starring in the first motion picture on the subject of homosexuality; 1919’s Anders als die Anderen (Different from the Others) which was written and produced by German sexologist and early Gay Rights champion Magnus Hirschfeld. Veidt also appears in Christopher Isherwood’s “Berlin Stories.” “Anders als die Anderen” was released in a DVD format a few years back and provides an amazing historical document of the times.
