Biography by Hal Erickson

German actor Carl Jaffe found it expedient to move to England in the late 1930s. Inevitably, Jaffe found himself cast as Nazis or heel-clicking Prussian aristocrats. His film characters in the postwar years were more sympathetic, but no less Teutonic. In the 1950s and 1960s, Carl Jaffe was often engaged to play Werner Von Braun types in such films as Rockets Galore (1954) and First Man Into Space (1958).
