Live and act

Johanna "Hanne" Brinkmann began her stage career in 1913 under her maiden name at the Theater in der Josefstadt in Vienna . After only one season, along with the outbreak of the First World War, the Hanoverian-born returned to Germany.

In Berlin she was brought in front of the camera for the first time by director Richard Oswald shortly after the war began . In the course of the war, Hanne Brinkmann developed into a sought-after comedian, with the 'Hanne' series towards the end of the war (1918), she received her own (short-lived) film series tailored to her needs. It was directed by her colleague actor Reinhold Schünzel , who was known to her since they were filming together in 1917 (“ The single woman ”) and whom Hanne Brinkmann was to marry in 1919. A little later, in the early 1920s, the artist temporarily withdrew into private life in order to devote herself entirely to raising her daughter Annemarie, who was born in 1922 .

Hanne Brinkmann's return to the camera in 1924 only brought her supporting roles; at the end of the silent film era, she withdrew completely into private life. She later divorced Schünzel, who emigrated to America with their two daughters in 1937 .
