Homosexual, successful violinist from the 1919 German film Anders als die Andern (Different From The Others). Played by Conrad Veidt.

Kurt Sivers (Fritz Schulz), a fan and admirer, becomes Körner's student, and the two have a relationship. Then Körner runs afoul of a blackmailer and Germany's anti-homosexual law at the time, Paragraph 175, and commits suicide.
