Biography

Wagnerian German actress Greta Meyer began appearing in films in her own country in the silent era; her credits during this period include 1922's De Jantjes and 1929's Die Konigsloge. Meyer made her American screen bow in 1930's The Royal Box. For the next decade or so, she could often as not be found playing hefty, apple-cheeked hausfraus, maids, nurses, cooks and cleaning ladies. Whenever Greta Meyer was given a character name, it was usually along the mittel-European or Scandinavian lines of Mrs. Svenson, Mrs. Oxenreich, Mrs. Schroldt, Mrs. Vogelhuger or Mrs. Rovitch. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
