Conrad Veidt on Screen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Conrad Veidt on Screen free pdf Conrad Veidt, a native of Berlin, began acting in small parts as an extra until called into service during World War I. After his discharge he began a theater career that subsequently led to a film career and more than one turn as a director. He left Germany for a silent film career in the United States at the urging of John Barrymore, who recruited him to play King Louis XI in "The Beloved Rogue", but returned to Germany when his accent and native German tongue made it difficult for him to adjust to sound movies. With the threat of Nazi power in Germany, Veidt then went to Britain, where he made many memorable movies. He returned to the United States and continued to make films with stars such as Joan Crawford and others until his death in 1943. He is remembered for his role as Nazi major Strasser in Casablanca. This work thoroughly details Veidt's film career. It lists all movies that he was involved in and provides a synopsis, cast and crew, and reviews of each film. There are many photographs, a list of films that he is thought possibly to have been involved in, and an extensive bibliography.
