Agnes Bernelle (born Agnes Elizabeth Bernauer; 7 March 1923 – 15 February 1999) was a Berlin-born expatriate actress and singer, who lived in England for many years, then Ireland. She appeared in over 20 films and also made stage and television appearances. Her family fled Berlin in 1936  . This was followed in 1988 by Some Bizzare label produced album, Mother, The Wardrobe is full of Infantrymen. The first two albums are filled with songs from Weimar cabaret (her father Rudolf Bernauer owned and ran three cabaret theatres in Berlin during the Weimar Republic years) and the third has more modern updates on the form with songs from Tom Waits and Roger McGough.

Agnes Bernelle was born as Agnes Bernauer, 1923, in Berlin, Germany; she died on 16 February 1999, Eire. Bernelle’s Hungarian-born father, Rudolph Bernauer, was a theatre owner who also wrote lyrics, and Marlene Dietrich was a family friend. She made her film debut at the age of seven, playing a boy. Her father was Jewish and in 1936, with the rise of the Nazis, the family moved to London to escape persecution. Bernelle’s father wrote and directed some films while in London. Elvis Costello produced her mid-80s album "Father’s Lying Dead On The Ironing Board". The follow-up "Mother, The Wardrobe Is Full Of Infantrymen" featured lyrics by Tom Waits and poets Adrian Mitchell, Roger McGough and Christopher Logue. Bernelle published her memoirs in 1996. Her final screen performance was as a bedridden woman in the 1998 short Still Life.

An early album of Brecht-Weill songs is as rare as birds milk, but her 1985 album Father's Lying Dead on the Ironing Board is an excellent place to discover her unique voice - for some reason salt and rusted iron cross my mind - and the artless whimsicality of her style. I never approach a song as one singing it,' she has said. Whereas Father's Lying Dead consists mainly of early German cabaret songs the 1988 follow-up Mother the Wardrobe is Full of Infantrymen brings things bang up to date with lyrics by Tom Waits and the poets Adrian Mitchell, Roger McGough and Christopher Logue among others.

On the first night an usherette tipped a tray of hot coffee into Levin's lap, which may have affected his view of the performance. The first two albums are filled with songs from Weimar cabaret (her father Roudie Bernauer ran a cabaret in Berlin) and the third has more modern updates on the form with songs from Tom Waits and Roger McGough.

Tom Waits (1949 – ) Agnes Bernelle complained of ‘a very strange young man’ pestering her to perform his song. He turned out to be Tom Waits. Performed Songs By: Frank Wedekind (1864 – 1918) Considered by many as the Father of Modern Theatre, influential on a young Bertolt Brecht & in opposition to bourgeois hypocrisy & an advocate of sexual liberation
