Preminger had no intention of returning to Austria, even before the events of March 1938 forced his brother and parents to flee to the United States, where Tallulah Bankhead (the actress who would later star in ''A Royal Scandal'') helped them get refugee visas. He returned to New York for three years to direct plays, including vehicles for aging stars Laurette Taylor and John Barrymore. Ironically, his unexpected acting turn as the Nazi villain in the play ''Theatre/MarginForError'' helped restart his film career through TypeCasting. 20th Century-Fox bought the film rights to ''Margin for Error'' on the request of Creator/ErnstLubitsch, who intended to direct Otto in the film version. After Lubitsch decided not to make it, Preminger himself ended up directing the film version on an actor's salary under a short-term contract (already extended before shooting finished) with William Goetz, who had temporarily become head of production when Zanuck went into military service. (The dour Preminger would go on to replace the jovial Lubitsch as director on three more productions: the never-filmed RomanticComedy ''All Over Arlene'', ''A Royal Scandal'' and ''Film/ThatLadyInErmine'', the last of these upon [[AuthorExistenceFailure Lubitsch's death]]. Another director whom Preminger replaced more than once was Rouben Mamoulian on ''Literature/{{Laura}}'' and ''Theatre/PorgyAndBess''.)
