Biographical Notes in German: Die Schauspielerin Vilma Banky wurde in Nagyrodog, Ungarn geboren. Sie begann ihre Karriere beim Stummfilm in Europa, wo sie zwischen 1920 und 1925 in Österreich, Ungarn und Frankreich Filme drehte.

(1925).

1925 war das Jahr ihres Durchbruchs. Samuel Goldwyn bot ihr einen Vertrag für Hollywood an und Vilma Banky griff zu. Sie hatte das Glück, mit dem legendären Rudolph Valentino als Partner in den Kinoerfolgen "The Eagle" (1925) und vor allem "The Son of the Sheik" (1926) zu spielen (Valentinos letzter Film), die sie im Nu zu einem Star werden liessen. Daneben drehte sie erfolgreich Filme mit dem Schauspieler Ronald Colman als ihren Partner.

Die Hochzeit wurde von Samuel Goldwyn bezahlt und galt als eine der extravagantesten Hochzeiten Hollywoods. Der Tonfilm leitete das Ende ihrer Karriere ein. Sie spielte in "This Is Heaven" (1929) und "A Lady to Love" (1930), danach ging sie mit ihrem Ehemann Rod La Rocque nach Deutschland, wo sie noch in zwei weiteren Filmen mitwirkte - "Die Sehnsucht jeder Frau" (1930) und "Der Rebell" (1932).
