Erich Pommer

Erich Pommer — one of the most important production personalities of early 20th century cinema. His productions, such as “The Cabinet of Dr Caligari” (1920), “Metropolis” (1927) and “The Blue Angel” (1930), are famous throughout the world and are still regarded as great cinema classics today.  


In addition to his intense interest in innovative technology and content, Erich Pommer always supported up-and-coming filmmakers as well as the education and further training of his employees.

As early as the 1920s, Erich Pommer brought back numerous new approaches and technologies, such as production schedules, cost estimating and dollies, from the US when returning to Germany. In 1933, he emigrated with his family. He worked together with Fritz Lang in France, with Alfred Hitchcock in England and eventually went to Hollywood. He returned to Germany in 1946 and supported the rebuilding of the German film industry as the US Army’s film control officer.
