Other works
He was a very successful and famous stage director in the Viennese 'Theater in der Josefstadt', where Max Reinhardt was director.

In the early 1930s he became the assistant director of the Theater in der Josefstadt. He actually led the house when Max Reinhardt worked in other countries.

The 'Theater in der Josefstadt' was the only rentable theatre in Vienna in the years of the depression, because Preminger had a lucky hand in choosing good plays and directing them well.

Father of screenwriter Ingo Preminger.
