Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Max Oph ls (born Maximillian Oppenheimer, 6 May 1902, Saarbr cken, Germany - 26 March 1957, Hamburg, Germany) was an influential German-born film director who worked in Germany, the United States and France. He made nearly thirty films. During the early part of his theatrical career he took the pseudonym Oph ls so that, should he fail, it wouldn't embarrass his garment-manufacturer father. He started his career as a stage actor in 1919 but moved into theatre production in 1924. Two years later, he became creative director of the Burgtheater in Vienna and, having had 200 plays to his credit, turned to film production in 1929, when he became a dialogue director under Anatole Litvak at UFA in Berlin. He worked throughout Germany and directed his first film in 1931, the comedy short Dann schon lieber Lebertran (literally In This Case, Rather Cod-Liver Oil).show more
