* ''Bunny Lake Is is Missing'' (1965)


Added DiffLines:


!!Tropes associated with him include:
* AllGermansAreNazis: As an actor, he played several Nazis even though he was [[IronyAsSheIsCast Jewish]] and Austrian.
* TheFilmOfTheBook: The majority of the films he directed were literary adaptations.
* GenreRoulette: He worked in a huge variety of genres and going from one Preminger film to the next can give a viewer MoodWhiplash. For example, his films from 1958-68 are: a romance, a [[TheMusical Musical]], a courtroom drama, an epic about the founding of UsefulNotes/{{Israel}}, a political thriller, a story about a Catholic priest, a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII movie, a [[Creator/AlfredHitchcock Hitchcockian]] mystery, a melodrama about race relations in the DeepSouth, and an offbeat comedy about gangsters and hippies.

Otto Preminger (December 5, 1905 April 23, 1986) was an Austrian-American director, film producer, and occasional actor.

to:

Otto Ludwig Preminger (December 5, 1905 April 23, 1986) was an Austrian-American director, film producer, and occasional actor.



In 1951, Preminger directed the Broadway hit ''Theatre/TheMoonIsBlue'', and announced plans to independently produce a film version. ''The Moon Is Blue'' dealt with, for its time, risque sexual matters. The film would not qualify for [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode Production Code]] approval (despite attempts to settle differences with Joseph Breen), so Preminger released it without code approval. ''The Man with the Golden Arm'' raised eyebrows not only for its candid treatment of drug use, which also failed to pass the Code, but for its spotlight-stealing credit, "A Film by Otto Preminger." Then there's ''Film/AnatomyOfAMurder'', which also circumvented the code by discussing rape and using other phrases related to it in the film. ''Film/AdviseAndConsent'' was the first Hollywood film to show a gay bar, while ''The Cardinal'' was one of the most critical films about the Catholic Church. These movies played a huge role in loosening censorship and paving the way for other directors to start testing and challenging the Code. A liberal, Preminger along with Creator/KirkDouglas played a role in ending UsefulNotes/TheHollywoodBlacklist, by crediting Dalton Trumbo for his work as a screenwriter. Preminger put out a ad in the major newspaper a year before the release of ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'', which preceded his film ''Film/{{Exodus}}'' in the release calendar. Both movies credit Trumbo in their titles.

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''.)
