Friedrich Murnau


German film director who was one of the greatest directors of German silent cinema from his first feature in 1919. Soon after his debut he held an international reputation and was highly applauded for "The Last Laugh," 1924 and "Sunrise," 1927. He was considered one of the masters of German expressionalism.

Both he and his 14 year old Philippine servant/chauffeur were killed in a car crash in Santa Monica, CA on 11 March 1931 while he was giving the boy fellatio. Murnau was entombed in Southwest Cemetery in Stahnsdorf near Berlin. Only 11 people attended the funeral. Among them were Robert Flaherty, Emil Jannings, Greta Garbo and Fritz Lang, who delivered the funeral speech. Garbo also commissioned a death mask of Murnau, which she kept on her desk during her years in Hollywood.
