Von Sternberg

John Baxter

University Press of Kentucky

French director Robert Florey served as an unofficial consul to Europeans visiting Hollywood for more than 40 years. He and von Sternberg became friendly when the latter, close to his 30th birthday, made a second stab at California. Von Sternberg served as his assistant. He ferreted out little weaknesses and commented on them. He opened himself to the accusation that he attempted to pay back old scores, and that he nursed grievances born of early hardships. By aggrandizing himself, von Sternberg may have hoped to end rumors that he was not named Sternberg at all, nor was he Viennese. Successive secretaries would inform callers that there was no “Mr. Sternberg” and that his family name began not with an “S” but with a “v.”
