Ernst Lubitsch

  1.  Akim Tamiroff, The Bucanneer, 1938.     Although he adored appearing in front of the camera,himself, for once CB DeMille was not contemptuous of another’s weakness, when Lubitsch proved too camera-shy to play Dominique You, based on a real-life cannoneer of Napoleon. Lubitsch had not acted on-screen since his 41th and final role in 1920.And in ’38, he was too busy directing his Garbo masterpiece, Ninotchka.
