Between 1914 and 1945, many Hollywood fixtures ventured outside America to make films. This group ranged from directors such as Rex Ingram, Josef von Sternberg, and Orson Welles, to stars such as Erich von Stroheim, Louise Brooks, Dorothy Gish, and Buster Keaton, among others. During WWII, even Alfred Hitchcock produced two French language films in Britain, Aventure Malgache and Bon Voyage. As a group they produced more than 200 films in 30 years. But out of sight, many of these films were quickly forgotten, or worse, ignored back home. Here for the first time is the story of these many films―illustrated with 60 rarely seen stills―and the filmmakers who created them.

About the Author:

Harry Waldman is the author of several books, including Paramount in Paris (1991) and Hollywood and the Foreign Touch: A Dictionary of Foreign Filmmakers and Their Films from America, 1910-1995 (1996), both published by Scarecrow.

From Library Journal:

In brief chapters, this unfocused monograph considers the careers of notable American "filmmakers" who at some point worked abroad. Directors comprise the bulk of the subjects here, although some actors and several cinematographers are also considered. Some went abroad for freedom, others for money or adventure. A few directors worked overseas on World War II combat documentaries (John Ford, John Huston, and William Wyler) and don't really belong in this book at all. (And why was George Stevens excluded?) To further confuse matters, the book includes directors (Alfred Hitchcock, Josef von Sternberg) who secured their reputations in Europe before coming to America. The author finds no common thread in their experiences, and no conclusions are drawn. Seemingly cobbled from previously published sources, this curious and incomplete book is not recommended.
