This book discusses the life and career of German Jewish filmmaker Ewald Andre Dupont (1861-1956), as a journalist, screen writer, and director in Berlin, 1913-25, 1931-33, a director at British International Pictures, 1926-31, and a B-movie director in Hollywood, 1925-26, 1933-56. Having apprenticed with Alfred Hitchcock, F. W. Murnau, Ernst Lubitsch, and Fritz Lang in Berlin, where he distinguished himself with Das alte Gesetz (1923) and Variete (1925), Dupont launched his career at 'the British Hollywood' of British International Pictures, where he contributed to the studio's international style, experimented with emergent sound technologies, made the world's first multilingual sound pictures, and, in the most creative phase of his career, directed the feature films Moulin Rouge (1928), Piccadilly (1929), Atlantic (1930), Two Worlds (1931), and Cape Forlorn (1931), which along with Variete, provide the focus of this academic study.
