Biography

Hanns Schwarz Born Ignatz Schwarz on the 11th February, 1888, Hanns Schwarz, as he came to be known, studied at Vienna"s Academy of Art before moving to Dusseldorf and later Paris to study architecture and painting. He then furthered his education by travelling to England, Egypt and around Europe. His entry into the film industry came purely by chance, when the Bulgarian government commissioned him to make a cultural film. In 1925 he contracted to UFA, emigrating from Germany to England in 1933 and then to the United States where, however, he gave up filmmaking. Married to the actress Lissy Arna, he died in November 1945 in Hollywood. A prolific director, Schwarz is perhaps best known for his "Ungarische Rhapsodie" (1928), "The Wonderful Lie Of Nina Petrowna" (1929), "Bomben auf Monte Carlo" (1931)," Prince Of Arcadia" (1933) and "Return Of The Scarlet Pimpernel" (1938).
