Vintage original 3.5 x 5.25 in. German Ross-Verlag postcard depicting the Austrian silent era and sound film actress, JENNY JUGO.


She is depicted in a full-length publicity shot wearing a beautiful dress with a bare back and a bright blonde wig as she looks over her shoulder at the viewer while striking a fun pose. This postcard was signed in black ink by Jenny Jugo in, we believe, 1926, the year in which she appeared in three silent films. Printed by the renowned Ross-Verlag company of Berlin, it is unused in very fine condition.
*"Jenny Jugo (born Eugenie Walter; 14 June 1904 – 30 September 2001) was an Austrian actress. She appeared in more than fifty films between 1925 and 1950.


Jugo was placed under contract by the German studio UFA in 1924, but struggled in early dramatic roles. Towards the end of the silent era, she fared much better in comedies and this trend continued into the 1930s. She became known for her portrayal of bouncy, assertive characters. Many of her films during this period were directed by Erich Engel.


She continued making films during the Nazi era until 1943, spending much of the rest of her time at her home in Bavaria. She was in a relationship with the producer Eberhard Klagemann who oversaw her final three post-war productions, including the DEFA comedy Don't Dream, Annette (1949).

In 1950 she married her former co-star Friedrich Benfer and retired from acting at the age of forty six.


In 1971 she received a lifetime achievement award for her outstanding contribution to German cinema."
