Biography

German filmmaker Karl Grune is best known for his seminal 1923 film Die Strassel/The Street, a cautionary psychological melodrama warning good husbands to avoid the many temptations of the bustling streets outside the safety of their homes. This film inspired other filmmakers, including Pabst, to make their own "street " films. A former student of Max Reinhardt, Grune started out as an actor in Berlin theater. Later he became the director of Berlin's Resident theatre. In 1918, Grune began his film career. After making one film in France, Grune left his native country in 1931 and eventually landed in England where he directed through the mid-'30s.
