  • Curtiz Bio Errata

    • Alan K. Rode

    1. Curtiz was born on Christmas Day 1886, not December 24, 1888, 2. Curtiz was not a supporter of Bela Kun. He made MY BROTHER IS COMING because he had to and left Hungary soon afterwards. Much later in Hollywood, Curtiz was a member of the Motion Picture Alliance, a virulent anti-Communist organization. 3. Harry Warner brought Curtiz to the U.S after visiting him on the set of not Jack Warner. 4. Noah's Ark was not notable for John Wayne's appearance as an extra. No one knew about this for decades and Wayne's appearance cannot be verified by viewing the restored version of the film. 5. How did Curtiz leave Warners and direct WHITE CHRISTMAS in 1954 and then "went on to direct 20 more pictures including THE BREAKING POINT in 1950? 6. CASABLANCA was "a mild box office success" ? It was a huge hit. Negative cost = $1,039.000. Gross by 1944 = $4,496,000. 7. "Longtime Curtiz screenwriting collaborators Julius and Philip Epstein, fresh from scripting the director's "Mission to Moscow" (1943)..." The Epsteins had nothing to do with writing MISSION TO MOSCOW that was scripted by Howard Koch and producer-writer Robert Buckner. 8. Why is YANKEE DOODLE DANDY "overly patriotic"? 9 "...but after that film's (Mildred Pierce) success, consensus had it that the master fell victim to the sheer volume of his output." By whose consensus? Curtiz formed his own production company and directed some of his biggest hits after MILDRED PIERCE including THE BREAKING POINT that the writer states in his opening paragraph was "the peak of his creative powers."

    Why is "My Brother is Coming" (1919) not listed as one of his films? Using a poem by Antal Farkas, this film marks an important contribution to the evolution of poetry films...

    It's not true, as the article states, that "with the nationalization of Hungary's film industry by Bela Kun's communist regime, he (Curtiz) fled the country." Curtiz was in fact a supporter of Kun, and even made a stirring propaganda film, "My Brother is Coming," in favor of the socialist takeover. It can be viewed on the Europa Film Treasures website.
