Henry Koster

Lowest Rated: 20% Desiree (1954)

Birthday: May 1, 1905

Birthplace: Berlin, Germany

Flexible studio talent who began his career as a critic, becoming a scenarist in 1926 and a director in 1932. Leaving Germany the year Hitler took power, Koster made several films in Europe before going to Hollywood. His US debut with "Three Smart Girls" (1937), the first in a series of Deanna Durbin vehicles, was a resounding success and helped bolster the straitened Universal studios.
