He also played in some lightweight swashbucklers.

Paul Henreid Facts
Father of Monika Henreid.

In 1943, he and his wife Lisl purchased the luxurious "Fonda House", designed by architect Paul Williams, from Henry Fonda and his wife Frances for $42,000. In 1970, tired of the expense and work to maintain such a large property, they sold that house and bought a smaller one in Pacific Palisades. Norman Lear was a later owner of the Fonda/Henreid house.

He was "investigated" by the notorious House UnAmerican Activities Committee during the McCarthy "Red Scare" period in the 1950s, and was subsequently blacklisted in Hollywood.
