Biography

Eric Charell was born in Breslau in 1894 and died in Zurich in 1974. He began his career as a dancer and actor, before he started directing at the beginning of the 1920s. After his success with revised versions of operetta classics, the Ufa hired him to direct "Congress Dances"("Der Kongress tanzt", 1931), which brought him international recognition. After Hitler came to power in the 1930s, Charell accepted an offer in Hollywood to direct the musical love story "Caravan" (1934). In the years that followed, he contributed to screenplays and concentrated on theater work. In 1950 he returned to Germany and produced the film adaptation of his greatest stage hit "The White Horse Inn" ("Im weissen Roessl", 1952). He also co-wrote the screenplay to "Broadway-Melodie" (1944), and produced "Casbah" (1947), and "Feuerwerk" (1954).
