Otto Preminger was born in Wiznitz in 1905. In 1934, while searching for new talents in Europe, Joseph Schenck, CEO of 20th Century Fox, invited him to Hollywood. In 1945, Preminger won great acclaim as director with Laura, a psychological film noir. Tired of the Hollywood system, he decided to self-produce his films, thanks to Associated Artists. His first independent film was The Moon Is Blue (1953), a real triumph. After returning to Fox, he signed a now-legendary western, River of No Return with Robert Mitchum and Marilyn Monroe. Bonjour Tristesse, Advise & Consent and The Cardinal are some of his most well known films.
