Truus Van Aalten, from http://truusvanaalten.com
Truus Van Aalten was an obscure Dutch actress who appeared in a number of German silent and early sound films after winning a competition in 1926, the prize being a small part in an Ufa film. I have to confess that I had never heard of Truus Van Alten, but one Roger Mitchell has constructed a richly-illustrated website dedicated to her career. She acted for directors such as Max Mack, Joe May, George Jacoby and Robert Weine, usually way down the cast list; she sported a Colleen Moore-style bob; and she was the subject of a lot of postcards. And now she is the subject of http://truusvanaalten.com. She seems to have been the epitome of the minor performer, but everyone deserves to have their own website – and now she has hers.
