Arthur Dreifuss
Date of Birth
Mar 25, 1908
Birth Place:
Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany


After producing and choreographing musicals on the German stage in the early '30s, Dreifuss came to Hollywood in 1935 and worked as a dance director. He debuted as a director in 1940 with Mystery in Swing, and over the decade helmed a range of low-budget genre films, from Boston Blackie's Rendezvous to Prison Ship, but specialized in musicals, including producer Sam Katzman's Two Blondes and a Redhead, Glamour Girl, and Mary Lou. He returned to directing in the late '50s for Katzman, helming Life Begins at 17 and The Last Blitzkrieg. In 1962 Dreifuss directed the Brendan Behan adaptation The Quare Fellow; his other '60s films are lurid Katzman exploitationers, including Riot on Sunset Strip, The Love-Ins, For Singles Only, and The Young Runaways. ~ Rovi
