German film director who made films in Germany from 1925 until 1933, when he was forced to flee the Nazi regime — who briefly had him arrested — because he was Jewish. Bernhardt directed films in France and England before moving on to Hollywood to work for Warner Brothers in 1940. His films made there include A Stolen Life (1946) and Sirocco (1951). He produced and directed his last Hollywood picture, Kisses for My President (1964), about the nation's first female Chief Executive starring Polly Bergen and Fred MacMurray. He was married from 1937 to 1947 to ballet dancer and actress Pearl Argyle. He died on 22 February 1981, aged 81, in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles.
