Von Stenberg's training films attracted attention. He maintained an impression of creative dominance, and held script conferences or auditions in secret, locking the doors and permitting no one to enter or leave. Nobody was allowed to make the slightest noise on the set. Von Stenberg banned watches, claiming that their ticking distracted him. Food and drink were also forbidden. These rules were quite common among European directors such as Max Reinhardt; if a visitor did not respectfully remove his hat, Reinhardt would snatch it off his head and throw it into the wings.

Keywords:   dominance, conferences, auditions, European, Reinhardt
