Von Sternberg

Adeline “Ad” Schulberg was an admirer of von Sternberg's career. She was the wife of B.P. Schulberg, West Coast production head of Famous Players. She had lobbyied her husband to hire von Sternberg ever since The Salvation Hunters. Von Sternberg came under the influence of senior art director Hans Dreier, imported from UFA in 1923. Although von Sternberg liked to say he “dictated” the look of his films, dictation is not creation. He needed talented individuals to realize his conceptions, and none was more gifted than Dreier, who worked on all von Sternberg's Paramount productions.

Keywords:   Adeline, Schulberg, Hans Dreier, dictation, Paramount
