Personal Quote:

I am only a craftsman working in a very big industry that in a third of a century conquered the markets, caught up the oldest and most important human activities like metallurgy or motor-engineering and may be compared with press for its social influence and its power in spreading ideas.

Trivia:

His last silent film in France was Les Nouveaux Messieurs, a topical political satire which provoked calls for it to be banned in France for "insulting the dignity of parliament and its ministers". By this time Feyder had accepted an offer from MGM to work in Hollywood, where in 1929 his first project was directing Greta Garbo in The Kiss, her last silent film. See more »
