Began photographing films in Germany in 1919 and worked throughout Europe before arriving in Hollywood in 1937. Planer's mobile, sinuous style chimed perfectly with that of director Max Ophuls, with whom he collaborated on "Liebelei" (1932), "The Exile" (1947) and "Letter from an Unknown Woman" (1948). He was also responsible for some fine color cinematography, notably on William Wyler's "The Big Country" (1958) and Blake Edwards' "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961).
