Sad news - a very versatile actor. 

But I cringed when a newspaper here had a picture of him online as Hitler, with the caption "DEAD".

I imagine most Americans knew him as Hitler, or as the gentle-eyed angel Damiel in WINGS OF DESIRE. It took a stunning breadth of talent that could play a supernaturally loving supernatural being, to effectively embodying Hitler's lunacy and decay. He was also great as Jonathon Harker in Werner Herzog's NOSFERATU, which is worth seeing in both its German and English versions.
