RIP Mady Rahl

Mady Rahl was a German stage and film actress.

Born Edith Gertrud Meta Raschke in Neukölln, Berlin, Rahl trained as an actress and dancer. In 1935 she made her stage debut in Leipzig under the direction of Douglas Sirk and started her film career in 1936 with the movie Der geheimnisvolle Mister X. With her role in the circus drama Truxa (1937) Rahl became known to a wider audience. She has appeared in approximately 90 movies, several of them for UFA. In later years, she appeared frequently on television, while also pursuing her career in the theatre.

Rahl's first marriage was to Theodor Reimers, her second was to producer Wilhem Sperber, and her third was to Werner Bürkle. Her sister Ellen died in 1995 in Munich and is buried at the Nordfriedhof.

Now almost blind and suffering from dementia, Rahl lived in a retirement home in Munich. Her caregiver is Thomas Speyerer.
