Erwin Faber (21 July 1891 – 4 May 1989) was a leading actor in Munich and later throughout Germany, beginning after World War I, and through the late-1970's, when he was still performing at the Residenz Theatre (The National Theatre of Bavaria). Born in Innsbruck, Austria, Faber remained in Germany during the Third Reich, emerging afterwards as a prominent actor in the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany). He died in Munich in 1989, only two months after his last performance at the Residenztheater (the National Theatre of Bavaria), at age 97.
Famous quotes containing the word faber:
“Galway is a blackguard place,
To Cork I give my curse,
Tralee is bad enough,
But Limerick is worse.
Which is worst I cannot tell,
Theyre everyone so filthy,
But of the towns which I have seen
Worst luck to Clonakilty.”
—Anonymous. Clonakilty, from Geoffrey Grigsons Faber Book of Epigrams and Epitaphs, Faber & Faber (1977)
