Biography

Authoritative German character actor Hans-Christian Blech made his earliest film appearances in 1949. Blech was introduced to American audiences in the role of Tiger in 20th Century Fox's Decision Before Dawn. Thereafter, he was frequently seen as military types in such all-star World War II re-creations as The Longest Day (1962) and The Bridge at Remagen (1969). Larger roles came Hans-Christian Blech's way in director Paul May's 08/15 trilogy of 1955, and in Wim Wenders' 1973 adaptation of The Scarlet Letter, in which Blech played Roger Chillingworth. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
