Karl Gerhard

Karl Emil Georg Gerhard, until 1938 Karl Emil Georg Johnson (14 April 1891 - 22 April 1964) was a Swedish theater director, revue writer and actor. In 1938 he changed his surname to Gerhard and used the pseudonym Karl-Gerhard. Many of Karl Gerhard’s plays and songs are politically to the left, and during the 1930s and World War II, they contained clear anti-fascist statements.
