Germans in Hollywood

Created and maintained by Hyde Flippo, this Web site pays homage to the long-standing connection between the Germanic world and the bright lights of Hollywood and the film industry. As Flippo contends in a brief introduction to the site, "No other single influence on American cinema has been greater than that from the German-speaking world." Given the preponderance of such Hollywood legends like Michael Curtiz, Marlene Dietrich, Ernst Lubitsch, Wolfgang Petersen, Billy Wilder, and William Wyler, there just may be something to this particular contention. The section titled Connections is quite interesting, as it draws portraits of the German-Hollywood connections within such films as Casablanca, the Tarzan movies which starred the late Johnny Weissmuller, and the films of Roland Emmerich (director of Independence Day and Godzilla), who is known as the Swabian Spielberg. Along with these engaging pieces, the site also contains material about actors with Germanic origins and film studios that were heavily influenced by those persons from the German-speaking world.
