He had a life-long commitment to German film despite his emigration in 1933 and his work in France, Britain, and the United States during the Hitler years. As German producer, studio executive, and film politician in the pre-Hitler era, he was an innovator and pioneer - a vital force in leading German cinema to international acclaim with successes such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The Nibelungen, and The Blue Angel. As Motion Picture Control Officer of the U.S. Military Government he undertook, from 1946-49, the difficult task of rebuilding West Germany's film industry from the ashes of the Second World War. He succeeded brilliantly, but not without paying the hefty price of becoming embroiled in the turmoil of postwar German politics, which made him many friends, but also many enemies+-+2584636206324371ocn020452450book19890.94Jacobsen, WolfgangErich Pommer : ein Produzent macht FilmgeschichteHistoryBiography22ocn221710448book19890.81Hardt, UrsulaErich Pommer film producer for GermanyHistory+-+5615755325324+-+5615755325324Fri Mar 21 15:31:28 EDT 2014batch28748
