I remember Herman G. Weinberg
16 October 2016 | by phil griesSee all my reviews

I had Herman G. Weinberg as an instructor when I was an undergraduate student attending City College of New York where I majored in Motion Picture Production...attaining a BA degree, graduating in January 1966. The first film course I, yours truly Phil Gries, ever took at CCNY was the History Of Film and Weinberg was my teacher, in the Fall of 1962. The film department was one of the premiere and oldest in the country at the time, founded by Hans Richter in 1941.For a short time Stanley Kubrick and Woody Allen were students there, in 1947 & 1953, respectively, studying film production. Herman G. Weinberg reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock...his gate and physical resemblance. His daughter would come to class quite often. He would show the classics to us.Many were silent films, including his own, one and only, directorial and cinematic achievement, "Autumn Fire." Weinberg was very proud of his film. I was impressed. Hard to believe how time does fly...54 years, yet not really so long ago in my mind!
