Jacques Feyder

Jacques Feyder (July 21, 1885 Ixelles-May 24, 1948 Prangins) otherwise known as Jacques Léon Louis Frédérix or Jacques Frédérix was a Belgian screenwriter, film director and actor. He had three children, Marc Feyder, Bernard Farrel and Paul Feyder.

Feyder began his career in the film industry in Paris, where he worked as an actor before moving on to screenwriting and directing. He made his directorial debut with the film "L'Atlantide" in 1921, and went on to direct several other successful films in the silent era, including "Crainquebille" (1922) and "Visages d'Enfants" (1925).

Feyder was known for his ability to capture subtle emotional nuances in his films, and he continued to refine his craft as cinema transitioned to sound. His 1932 film "L'Argent" was considered a masterpiece of French cinema, and he continued to direct films throughout the 1930s.

During World War II, Feyder was forced to flee Europe due to his Jewish heritage, and he eventually settled in Hollywood, where he worked as a screenwriter. He returned to Europe after the war, but his career was not the same as it had been before, and he died in relative obscurity in 1948.

Despite his career setbacks, Feyder is remembered today as a pioneer of both silent and sound cinema, and his contributions to the art form have been widely acknowledged.
