Maly Delschaft (depicted in her role as "Die Lehrerin" on the poster for "Kreuzzug des Weibes," 1926)


German stage and film actress, noted today for her leading role as a teacher who is raped and has an abortion in the then-controversial 1926 film Kreuzzug des Weibes (The Woman's Crusade). She was originally intended for the role of Lola-Lola in Der blaue Engel (The Blue Angel) but the role went to Marlene Dietrich.

After beginning in theatre, Delschaft switched to silent films. She appeared in mainly supporting roles during the Weimar and Nazi eras. After the Second World War she worked in East Germany for the state-controlled studio DEFA.

In 1970 she was awarded the Filmband in Gold for her life's work. She died on 20 August 1995 in Berlin, aged 96.
