Ernst Laemmle
Birth: Sep. 25, 1900
Death: May 1, 1950

Motion Picture Director. Born in Munich, Germany, he came to Hollywood after World War I at the invitation of his uncle, Universal Studios founder Carl Laemmle. There he earned his keep as a director, turning out over 50 westerns between 1924 and 1930, including "The Lone Round-Up" (1924), "Way of the West" (1925), "The Bronco Buster" (1927), and "The Rustler's Secret" (1928). He was also one of several uncredited directors who worked on the Lon Chaney classic "The Phantom of the Opera" (1925). With the arrival of talkies Laemmle was named Chief of Universal's German branch, a position that was abruptly terminated after the Nazis came to power in 1933. Three years later the entire Laemmle family was ousted from Universal in a hostile takeover bid. He was later an assistant to writer-director Preston Sturges and contributed to the screenplays of "Christmas in July" (1940) and "Sullivan's Travels" (1941). Laemmle was a co-founder of the Temple Israel in Los Angeles. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
