He began working in the German film industry, before relocating after the rise of the Nazi party. He moved to Austria and Hungary in the mid-1930s where he frequently collaborated with the director Henry Koster. His screenplay for the 1935 film "Little Mother" served as the basis for a Hollywood remake "Bachelor Mother" (1939) which was nominated for an Academy Award.
