Alfred Peter Abel was a multidimensional character in German cinema, having worked as an actor, director, and producer. His career had a lasting impression on both silent and sound films. Abel is most recognized for his performance as Joh Fredersen in Fritz Lang’s classic 1927 film “Metropolis,” but he also made over 140 other films that demonstrated his range of skills.


Alfred Peter Abel was born in Leipzig, Germany, on March 12, 1879. After completing his studies to become a forester, he became interested in commerce and gardening. Abel’s journey to become a businessman took a detour when he attended private acting courses and studied art drawing at the Leipzig Academy.

Abel started his acting career in Lucerne, Switzerland, and he went on to play in theaters all across the canton of Lucerne. His big break came when he became well-known and acknowledged by joining Max Reinhardt’s Baranowsky Theater in Berlin. His performance at the Irving Place Theatre in New York City demonstrated his global success.

Alfred Peter Abel’s transition into film began in 1913. His screen debut was in Max Reinhardt’s silent movie, “Eine Venezianische Nacht,” marking the start of a prolific film career. Abel went on to feature in over a hundred silent films directed by luminaries such as Ernst Lubitsch, F. W. Murnau, and Richard Oswald. His roles often portrayed dignified authority figures, earning him the moniker “Lewis Stone of German Pictures.”

Notable silent film performances include “Phantom” (1922), “Dr. Mabuse the Gambler” (1922), “Die Flamme” (1923), and his iconic role as Joh Fredersen in “Metropolis” (1927), directed by Fritz Lang.

In Max Reinhardt’s silent film “Eine Venezianische Nacht,” he made his on-screen debut and launched a successful cinema career. In the years that followed, Abel appeared in more than a hundred silent films helmed by notable directors including Richard Oswald, F. W. Murnau, and Ernst Lubitsch. His portrayals of respectable authority people won him the title “Lewis Stone of German Pictures.”
