Isa Günther

Isa and Jutta Günther (born 27 May 1938 Munich)[1] are two German actresses and former child actresses.[2]

Biography

Twin sisters Isa and Jutta were trained in ballet for nine years.[3] They began their film careers in 1950 in Das doppelte Lottchen. Though this film was a box office hit, which also earned Kästner the Filmband in Gold, the subsequent heimatfilms in which the twin sisters appeared were more or less forgotten. The two also had a guest role in the 1954 musical film An jedem Finger zehn, with Bibi Johns and Josephine Baker among others.

Isa played only two roles without her twin sister, Klara Sesemann in the films Heidi (1952) and Heidi und Peter (1955).

The Günther twins ended their film careers at the age of 20, later married and moved into private life. By her marriage Jutta became Jutta Günther-Westerbarkey.
