Kertész continued his prolific period at Phönix with the release of seven films during 1917–18. Titles included The Jew Tenant and The Rental Car 99, the latter starring Bela Lugosi. October 1918 brought an end to the war when Austria-Hungary was broken up by the victorious Allies. As the country descended into chaos, Kertész continued making films. The ascension of an authoritarian Communist government quickly gave way to a right-wing coup that included a purge launched against the film industry and Jews.Feeling very much at risk, Kertész slipped out of the country and ended up in Vienna making films for Count Alexander Kolowrat’sSascha Productions. He was soon joined by many of his countrymen, including Alexander Korda and Bela Lugosi.

Keywords:   Bela Lugosi, Hungarian Soviet Republic, Béla Kun, My Brother Is Coming, Miklós Horthy
