German-Jewish film director, screenwriter and cinematographer, who directed 36 films between 1920 and 1969. Berger began working in the German film industry during the Weimar Republic. At Decla-Bioscop and later UFA he established a reputation as a leading director of silent films. He emigrated to Hollywood, but was unable to establish himself and returned to Europe. He subsequently worked both in France and Germany. He was a member of the jury at the 6th Berlin International Film Festival. Berger also translated a few of Shakespeare's plays, including Cymbeline, Hamlet, and Timon of Athens. He died on 18 May 1969, aged 77, in Schlangenbad, West Germany.
