Biography by Hal Erickson

Swiss actor Paul Hubschmid was a "young" leading man of remarkable endurance. He made his first appearances on stage in Austria in the late '30s, and was still essaying romantic leads into the early '60s. Actually, Hubschmid had two careers - under two names. As Paul Hubschmid, he was featured in such European films as Der Fall Rainer (1942), Du Bist Musik (1949), Rommel's Treasure (1962) and Funeral in Berlin (1966). Under his Hollywood-imposed moniker of "Paul Christian", Hubschmid played accentless leads in films like No Time for Flowers (1952) and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953).
