The legendary Dutch/German actor Johannes "Jopi" Heesters died today at the age of 108. I don't know how famous he was in other countrys, but in Germany he was very well known. Heesters was the oldest actor alive and acting with a career that lasted over 90 years. I wish his family all the best in this difficult time.

I can't recall hearing of

I can't recall hearing of this actor, though it is possible I may have seen him at some point in viewing several hundred movies. My favorite German actor in the business today is fairly young compared to Mr. Heesters, being Thomas Kretchsmann. Have any films I should look up?

Well I can't recommend a film

Well I can't recommend a film because I'm no real fan of Heesters, maybe because I'm to young and he was more a musician then an actor. His most famous song in Germany was "Heut geh ich ins Maxim" he sang it over 1600 times during his career. I just wanted to pay some kind of tribute to a man who was special and an important part in the life of many people and I have to agree that Thomas Kretchsmann is, I think the best german actor we have at the moment.
