As Peter Wolff, he appeared in a number of German films (Revolt in the Reform School, Der brave Suender etc.) and at least one play (Die erste Mrs Selby).[3] After immigrating to the United Kingdom in the 1930s, he appeared in British films and television dramas from the 1940s and Hollywood films from the 1960s. He is perhaps best known for his portrayals of Nazi German characters in films such as Where Eagles Dare (1968) in which he played Colonel Weissner, Carve Her Name with Pride (1958), The Guns of Navarone (1961) and The Heroes of Telemark (1965).

His television appearances included two episodes of The Saint and a cameo appearance in the opening episode, 'Departure and Arrival', as Dr. Hauser in the short-lived, six-episode BBC sci-fi drama series Moonbase 3 (1973).
