Distinguished Dutch actor John van Dreelen (1922-1992) played German officers and other bad guys in many European and American films, but he is best remembered as an A-list guest star in dozens of American television shows from the early sixties to the mid-eighties. Van Dreelen also enjoyed an international stage career and starred as Captain von Trapp in the original American touring production of The Sound of Music. His smooth charisma and distinctive Dutch accent kept him in worldwide demand throughout a career that spanned more than 40 years.
John van Dreelen was born as Jacques van Drielen Gimberg in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in 1922. He was the son of celebrated Dutch actor/director Louis Gimberg and the French baroness Josine Elise Labouchere. Despite his mother's desire that he join her family's well-established porcelain business, young Jack Gimberg chose his father’s profession. Only 19 years old, he made his stage debut at the Residentie Toneel in Den Haag (The Hague) in 1941. Two years later he was sent to the Emslandlager labor camp near Papenburg in Nazi-occupied Holland, where he was assigned to grueling street construction. In the camp he joined a performers' troupe, and during one performance, he managed to grab a German uniform from the audience cloak room. Fluent in Dutch, English, French, Italian and German, he escaped by disguising himself as one of the German officers which he would later so often play on both big and small screens. After the war, he made his film debut in the Dutch war drama Niet tevergeefs/But Not in Vain (1948, Edmond T. Greville) with Max Croiset and Jopie Koopman. In France, he played a bit part in the original film version of Colette’s Gigi (1949, Jacqueline Audry) starring Daniele Delorme and Gaby Morlay. He was invited by Laurence Olivier to co-star in his 1950 production of Daphne Laureola. He changed his stage name from Jack Gimberg to John Van Dreelen. Following a tour of England, the play landed briefly in New York. There Van Dreelen appeared in a few TV shows, but restrictive immigration laws made it impossible for him to stay in America, and he returned to Europe. He played Audrey Hepburn's husband in both the English and French versions of the comedy Monte Carlo Baby/Nous irons a Monte Carlo (1951, Jean Boyer, Lester Fuller). He appeared in the French crime film Brelan d'as/Full House (1952, Henri Verneuil) based on stories by Peter Cheney and Georges Simenon. The following years he mainly appeared in German films, including a leading role in the Heimatfilm Rote Rosen, rote Lippen, roter Wein/Tender and True (1953, Paul Martin) opposite Gardy Granass, a small role in the war film Der letzte Akt/ The Last Ten Days (1955, Georg Wilhelm Pabst) about the Last Ten Days of Adolph Hitler, and the crime film In Hamburg sind die Nachte lang/In Hamburg Nights Are Long (1956, Max Michel) with Barbara Rutting.
John van Dreelen made his U.S. film debut in A Time to Love and a Time to Die (1958, Douglas Sirk), a grim movie about Germany in the last months of World War II. Director Douglas Sirk was instrumental in helping John and his wife Jane emigrate to America. Although he would never become a major player in American cinema, he nonetheless scored a few choice roles in the following years. He was one of the victims of Coleen Gray in the horror/SciFi film The Leech Woman (1960, Edward Dein). In Von Ryan’s Express (1965, Mark Robson) he played a German officer who shot Frank Sinatra. During the rest of his career he would play many more German officers and other bad guys. Despite his close identification with despotic roles, he also easily breezed through light drama and comedy. For instance as a Danish concert pianist who rescues and woos Lana Turner during an extended sequence in Madame X (1966, David Lowell Rich). But he is best remembered for his guest starring roles in many legendary TV series. He cut a dashing and memorable villain in such sixties pop culture series as Gunsmoke (1961), Rawhide (1962), Twilight Zone (1964), The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964), Perry Mason (1964-1965), I Spy (1965), Mission: Impossible (1967), The Mod Squad (1968) and The Wild Wild West (1966-1969). Van Dreelen became the quintessential urbane sadist, and his turns as unrepentant Nazis, aristocratic dictators, and cold-blooded Iron Curtain assassins are without peer. Van Dreelen also enjoyed an international stage career and starred in 1962 as Captain Von Trapp in the first national tour of The Sound of Music opposite alternately Barbara Meister and Jeannie Carson. He was considered composer Richard Rodgers's first choice to play the film role that eventually went to Christopher Plummer. It was the most bitter disappointment of Van Dreelen’s career.
John van Dreelen continued to appear in both Hollywood movies and European films. Amon

Linda Christian (1923) was the first Bond girl ever. This sensuous, incredibly beautiful starlet appeared in dozens of films in Mexico, Hollywood, and Europe. She starred with Johnny Weissmuller in his last Tarzan film, Tarzan and The Mermaids (1948), but she became most famous as Mrs. Tyrone Power.
Linda Christian was born as Blanca Rosa Welter in Tampico, Mexico, in 1923. She was the daughter of Dutch engineer and Royal Dutch Shell executive, Gerardus Jacob Welter, and his Mexican-born wife of Spanish, German and French descent Blanca Rosa. She had three younger siblings, two brothers, Gerardus Jacob Welter and Edward Albert Welter, and a sister, Ariadna Gloria Welter, who would become a well-known actress of the Mexican cinema. The Welter family moved a great deal during Christian's youth, living everywhere from South America and Europe, to the Middle East and Africa. As a result of this nomadic lifestyle, Christian became an accomplished polyglot with the ability to speak fluent French, German, Dutch, Spanish, English, Italian, and even a bit of haphazard Arabic and Russian. After she graduated from secondary school the beautiful girl played a small part in the successful Mexican film El penon de las Animas/The Rock of Souls (1943, Miguel Zacarias) starring Maria Felix. After working as a clerk in the British government office in Palestine, Christian relocated to Acapulco, where she was discovered by film star Errol Flynn. She made her film debut as a Goldwyn girl in Up In Arms (1944, Elliott Nugent), co-starring Danny Kaye and Dinah Shore. This musical comedy was also Danny Kaye's first film. Signed to an RKO contract in 1944, she languished in bit roles for a year or so. At a fashion show in Beverly Hills she was spotted by Louis B. Mayer's secretary. He offered, and she accepted, a seven year contract with MGM. Her best-known film during her MGM years was as a loan-out to her old studio of RKO to appear in the Mexico-filmed Tarzan and the Mermaids (1948, Robert Florey) with Johnny Weissmuller.
Linda Christian really became famous when she married matinee idol Tyrone Power. Reportedly they had met for the first time in Acapulco, where he was making Captain from Castile (1947, Henry King) , and she was filming Tarzan and the Mermaids. Their marriage in Rome attracted over 10,000 spectators. The publicity about the ‘marriage of the century’ improved her film career somewhat. She starred in films like Battle Zone (1952, Lesley Selander) with John Hodiak, The Happy Time (1952, Richard Fleischer) with Charles Boyer, and the adventure Slaves of Babylon (1953, William Castle). Later she also often appeared on television. In 1954 she appeared in Casino Royale (1954, William H. Brown Jr.), an episode of the TV-series Climax! This was the first adaptation of one of the James Bond novels by Ian Fleming. In the TV film ‘Jimmy’ Bond was an American spy (played by Barry Nelson) who’s mission is to break the bank on Le Chiffre (Peter Lorre), a top Soviet operative in France. Linda Christian played Bond’s old flame Valerie Mathis. Several times, Tyrone Power and Christian were offered the opportunity to work together, but for various reasons each offer was refused or rescinded. The couple had two daughters: actress Taryn Power and singer Romina Power, one half of the famous Italian singing duo Al Bano & Romina Power. In 1956 Power and Christian divorced, which garnered international headlines due to Christian's then-enormous one-million-dollar cash settlement.
After her divorce, Linda Christian often worked in Europe. Among her European productions are the British drama Thunderstorm (1956, John Guillermin) co-starring Carlos Thompson, the British thriller The House of the Seven Hawks (1959, Richard Thorpe) with Robert Taylor, the German airplane-thriller Abschied von den Wolken/Rebel Flight to Cuba (1959, Gottfried Reinhardt) with O.W. Fischer, the British Oscar winning drama The VIP’s (1963, Anthony Asquith) starring Elizabeth Taylor, the Italian-Spanish bullfighting drama Il momento della verita/The Moment of Truth (1965, Francesco Rosi), and the Dutch thriller 10:32/10:32 in the Morning (1966, Arthur Dreyfuss). Although most of her films were not a success, Christian was a favorite of the celebrity press. They loved to write about her tempestuous affairs with Spanish marquis Alfonso de Portago, Brazilian mining and metals millionaire Francisco ‘Baby’ Pignatari, and Spanish bullfighter Luis Dominguin. In 1962 and 1963, she was briefly married to the Rome-based British actor and playboy Edmund Purdom, and later she married a third time into an aristocratic European family. Christian published her memoirs, Linda: My Own Story, in 1962. She continued to appear on American TV and incidentally in films. One of her most notable performances was in the episode An Out for Oscar (1963, Bernard Girard) of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour on TV. In the 1980’s she m
