Actress Lillian Gish called off for the part of ‘Gretchen’ for the movie "Faust" and F.W. Murnau engaged the unknown Camilla Horn. The movie raised her to the state of a star. In 1928 she was the lover of producer Joseph M. Schenck and she was able to make several Hollywood movies, mostly playing vamps. In "Tempest" and in "Eternal Love" she starred with John Barrymore. Back in Germany she would appear in another seventy movies. Horn continued in the sound film to play in different countries and she appeared besides Germany also in England and France.
