Ernst Lubitsch


German-American actor, screenwriter, producer and film director.

Lubitsch left Germany for Hollywood in 1922, contracted as a director by Mary Pickford. His urbane comedies of manners gave him the reputation of being Hollywood's most elegant and sophisticated director; as his prestige grew, his films were promoted as having "the Lubitsch touch."

In 1947 he received an Honorary Academy Award for his distinguished contributions to the art of the motion picture, and he was nominated three times for Best Director.

He died on November 30, 1947 in Hollywood of a heart attack, his sixth.
