German film director and screenwriter, who gave Marlene Dietrich her film debut, casting her in a small role in The Little Napoleon (1923). His involvement with large-budget Italian epic Quo Vadis (1924), which was a critical and commercial disaster, damaged his reputation. He rebuilt his career by directing a series of popular comedies and musicals.

He was married to Marika Rökk from 1940 until his death. Actress Gabriele Jacoby is his daughter. During the Nazi era, Jacoby specialised in light comedies featuring Rökk. In 1941 he directed the first Agfacolor film Women Are Better Diplomats. He remained active in West Germany, directing his final film in 1960.

Georg Jacoby died on 21 February 1964, aged 81, in Munich.
