MARIKA ROKK SUSPECTED KGB SPY
(1913 - 2004) German film star, Marika Rokk became famous when propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels decided Germany needed a film icon to rival Hollywood stars such as Ginger Rogers and Rita Hayworth. She was first identified as a possible KGB agent in 1951 by west Germany's Gehlen Organisation, which was reportedly concerned by her 'connections with Soviet authorities'. Bold signature in blue ink on a period black-and-white photo postcard, a chest-up portrait, 3.5 x 5.5 inches.
