Jean Hersholt Facts

Translated over 160 of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales into English. These were published in 1949 in six volumes as "The Complete Andersen". Hersholt was knighted by King Christian X of Denmark in 1948, partly due to this endeavor. Hersholt's grave in Forest Lawn Memorial Park is marked with a statue of Klods Hans, a Hans Christian Anderson character who left Denmark to find his way in the the world - much as Hersholt himself did.

Ex-father-in-law of Osa Massen.
