Personal Fact of Josef von Sternberg

Josef von Sternberg was an Austrian-American film director known for films like Morocco and The Scarlet Empress. A very talented director, he is credited with introducing a hitherto unknown Marlene Dietrich to Hollywood and making an international superstar out of her. Sternberg and Dietrich worked together in a number of films, which were both commercial as well as critical successes, helping establish both the director and the actress as major figures of the Hollywood golden age. Born into a Jewish family in Vienna, he migrated to the United States as a child.

His family was of humble means and he dropped out of high school to get a job. By chance one of his early jobs was at the World Film Company where he was exposed to the techniques of film-making. He found a mentor in French-American film director, Emile Chautard, who hired the young man as an assistant director for one of his films. Soon Sternberg began directing films and enjoyed moderate success. It was only after he started his collaboration with Dietrich that he enjoyed phenomenal success which established him as one of the foremost Hollywood directors of his era. He also had a role to play in creating the glamorous images of actresses like Carole Lombard, Rita Hayworth and Dolores del Rio.
