She was remembered by Lang for her superb depiction of the blind girl in the classic silent movie The Love of Jeanne Ney (1928).

Brigitte's movie career continued into the mid 1930s, but not without controversy. She refused to play vamp roles beginning in 1929. Brigitte eventually sued the German studio UFA, the company that produced most of her films.
