The details

Ludwig Berger (born Ludwig Bamberger; 6 January 1892 – 18 May 1969) was a German-Jewish film director, screenwriter and cinematographer. He directed 36 films between 1920 and 1969. Berger began working in the German film industry during the Weimar Republic. At Decla-Bioscop and later UFA he established a reputation as a leading director of silent films. He emigrated to Hollywood, but was unable to establish himself and returned to Europe. He subsequently worked both in France and Germany. He was a member of the jury at the 6th Berlin International Film Festival.

Berger also translated a few plays of Shakespeare, including Cymbeline, Hamlet, and Timon of Athens.

His elder brother was the set designer Rudolf Bamberger who was killed in 1945.
