About Gottfried Reinhardt

Gottfried Reinhardt (20 March 1911 – 19 July 1994) was an Austrian (naturalized American) film director and producer. He was born in Berlin the son of the Austrian theater director Max Reinhardt (until 1904: Max Goldmann), manager of the Deutsches Theater, and his first wife Else Heims. Gottfried attended the Französisches Gymnasium Berlin and began his career as an actor and director at his father's stage. In 1932 he went on a study visit to the US, where he remained after the Nazi Machtergreifung in Germany on 30 January 1933. In Hollywood he became assistant director of Ernst Lubitsch, later a production assistant at the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios, contributing to the making of the 1938 film The Great Waltz. In 1941 he produced Two-Faced Woman starring Greta Garbo in her final film role. A naturalized American, he served in the US Army in World War II. Reinhardt gave his debut as a director with Invitation in 1952. Two years later he again worked in Germany; his film version Before Sundown of Gerhart Hauptmann's drama Vor Sonnenuntergang starring Hans Albers won the Golden Bear (Audience award) at the 6th Berlin International Film Festival.[1] Gottfried Reinhardt is the stepfather of the American circuit judge Stephen Reinhardt.[citation needed] [edit]Selected filmography
