BIOGRAFIE Reinhold Schünzel
Born November 7, 1886 in Hamburg, Germany, Reinhold Schünzel appeared first on screen in 1916. Soon after, he diversified into directing. He made his mark with epic historical dramas like Katharina die Große (1920) which were popular enough to allow him to set up his own production company. Signed by MGM after his move to Hollywood, he directed three films among which stand out the glossy operetta Balalaika (1939).Sometime after 1949, he returned to Germany but found work opportunities scarce. Schünzel died in November 1954 of a heart ailment following a visit to the cinema.
