Art & Design in The British Film # 16: Alfred Junge

Continuing a series about Art Directors in the British film industry up to 1948, when the book containing these articles was published.

This chapter deals with Alfred Junge (1886 – 1964)

‘Asked by friends or relations: “What will you be when you grow up?” my answer was invariably: “I’ll be an artist or a Kaiser.” When the time came there was no great future or demand for
Kaisers and I had to stick to becoming an artist. How wise I must have been in those early days!’

On IMDB, simonstudios from London, England said: This is actually a very sympathetic adaptation of the original novel by Leon Feuchtwanger (who was himself Jewish), and should not be confused with the Nazi travesty of 1940, which was a crude, anti-semitic propaganda vehicle.
