She appeared both on stage and in silent films; however, all films featuring Langer as an actress are now considered lost. Gilda Langer was born Hermengild Langer into a Sudeten German family in Oderfurt, Austria-Hungary (now, Přívoz, Czech Republic). Around 1915, she met Austrian dramaturge and screenwriter Carl Mayer in Vienna who then took her to Berlin and helped her to gain an engagement as a stage actress at the Residenz Theater. Her first role at the theatre was in a production of the Robert Grötzach-penned 1917 play Dyckerpotts Erben. In 1917, Carl Mayer announced to the film trade press that Langer would begin appearing in leading lady roles in several films for the newly created Berlin-based Star-Film company. Her first film role was in the 1917 Alexander Antalffy and Paul Leni-directed drama Das Rätsel von Bangalor/The Mystery of Bangalore, opposite actors Conrad Veidt and Harry Liedtke. This was followed in 1918 by a starring role in the Jenő Illés-directed drama Ringende Seelen/ Struggling Souls. After being introduced to filmmaker Fritz Lang, Langer would appear prominently in Lang's films Halbblut and Der Herr der Liebe, both released in 1919, as well as in Lang's Die Spinnen, I. Der goldene See (1919/1920). In 1919, Gilda Langer was cast to play the role of Jane in the Robert Wiene-directed and Carl Mayer and Hans Janowitz-penned German Expressionist horror film Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari/The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. However, Langer became ill before shooting and had to be replaced by actress Lil Dagover. Langer's last film role was in the Fritz Lang-penned and Otto Rippert directed 1919 drama Die Frau mit den Orchideen/ The Woman with Orchids. In January 1920, Langer became engaged to Hungarian film director Paul Czinner. Langer fell ill with a lung infection after contracting the Spanish flu shortly after this engagement and died on 31 January 1920, aged 23. Her funeral was held on 4 February 1920 and she was interred at the Südwestkirchhof Stahnsdorf cemetery in Stahnsdorf, Brandenburg. Sources: Wikipedia, and IMDb.
