"Kunkel discovered two of the black and white films -- the pastoral Desire in the Woods and The Trapper. In one of them, a man ties a naked woman to a tree. Incredibly, Kunkel tracked down the actress some 60 years after her woodland nude scene, living in an old people's home outside Hamburg. 'I found her via a photographer who had known her since she was 14, when she posed for nude photographs,' Kunkel says.
"The 83-year-old was slightly taken aback by the novelist's visit, but agreed to help. She could recall only two 'polite, charming men' who approached her outside a tobacconist's kiosk in Berlin. The men had driven her and her sister in a black Opel Admiral -- the saloon car favoured by the Gestapo -- to the woods outside Hamburg. There she had disrobed.
" 'She told me she and her sister had had a threesome with a man. I found this a bit surprising,' Kunkel says. The novelist never did discover who the director of the film was, but he used the movies as the framework for his 622-page manuscript,"
