Biography

Ewald André Dupont (1891-1956) established in 1911 the regular column "Kino und Varieté" in the Berlin newspaper B.Z. am Mittag. In 1916, he changed jobs and became a popular screenwriter and began directing his own crime-story scripts in 1918. After such successes as "Der weisse Pfau" (1920), "Das alte Gesetz" (1923), and "Varieté" (1925), he worked in Hollywood and London and experimented in sound technology. His film "Atlantic" (1929) was an example of some of the most innovative uses of sound at that time. He then returned to circus films with "Salto Mortale" (1930), known for its unusual camera perspectives. His other films include: "Die Geier-Wally" (1921), "Moulin Rouge" (1927), "Two Worlds" (1930), "Forgotten Faces" (1936), and "Return to Treasure Island" (1954), among others.
