Ferdinand Schumann-Heink (born 9 August 1893 – 15 September 1958)[citation needed] was a prolific character actor with over 65 films to his credit.

Though most of his films were uncredited roles, he wrote the screenplay for the 1930 film Mamba.[1]

During the First World War Ferdinand enlisted in the U.S. Army Field Artillery, serving at Camp Funston, Arizona, until he was medically discharged with weakened lungs from pneumonia.[2] Ferdinand's brother George Washington Schumann-Heink died of illness whilst in the US Army. His brother August had returned to Germany, where he was killed in action with the Imperial German Navy when his U-boat hit a mine in the Mediterranean Sea.[3]

Personal life

Heink was the son of opera singer Ernestine Schumann-Heink.[4] He was married to June Osborne.


He died in 1958 in Los Angeles, California. He was buried in Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, San Diego County, California.[citation needed]
