Biography

Robert Siodmak was born in 1900 in Dresden and died in 1973 in Locarno. He studied in Marburg and worked as an actor for the Ufa. In 1940, he went to the United States and made a name for himself with his psychologically accentuated crime story films. He was a representative of the humanistic-realism of German films prior to 1933 and one of the most important American directors of the "Black Series".

His films include: "Abschied" (1930), "Voruntersuchung" (1931) - which was blacklisted in 1933 -, "Brennendes Geheimnis" (1933), "The Suspect" ("Unter Verdacht", 1944), "The Spiral Staircase" ("Die Wendeltreppe", 1945), "The Devil Came at Night" ("Nachts, wenn der Teufel kam", 1957) - which was nominated for an Academy Award in 1958, and many more.
