Book has a potential unique DDP hit, now that Elisabeth Wiedemann is dead at 89:

She played the wife of "Ekel Alfred" in the early german TV series (actually a sitcom long before they became a household name) "Ein Herz und Eine Seele" (A heart and a soul, meaning, sort of, beating as one heart). It was an iconic german TV-show of the 70s about a "typical" german family with "Alfred" as the always grumpy father. It was before my time, and it always seemed to me that this father was symbolic for the people who voted Hitler into office and the children had to life with these people. Elisabeth Wiedemann is the last of the core family to die since the actors of her two TV children died before her.
Wiedemann also had a couple of roles in some very prominent german TV movies, and the usual smaller roles in several series'.
