Henry Koster was a German-born American screenwriter, cartoonist and painter who started as a film critic and ended up being a director. By 1931 he had written more than 50 scripts. He made a few films in Europe before he had to leave Germany when Hitler and the Nazis came to power. He fled to France after having an altercation with a German Nazi SA officer, and then to America via Hungary. Ironically he was considered an alien after the Second World War and was restricted to his house for some time. After reaching Hollywood he was signed up by ‘Universal’. His career was spread over more than four decades. He was first introduced to movies in 1910 when he accompanied his mother to a movie theater owned by his Uncle Richard and had to sit out the screening of the films for two hours every day. His mother used to play the piano for the music accompanying the films. Though he did not win any Oscar, he directed seven actors and actresses who produced Oscar winning performances during their career such as Cecil Kellaway, Celeste Holm, Loretta Young, Elsa Lancaster, James Stewart, Josephine Hull and Richard Burton. Josephine Hull won the Oscar for the film ‘Harvey’ made by Koster.
