The Films of Douglas Sirk

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter gives a brief outline of Sirk’s life after his emigration to the US and analysis of the early films he made there. It offers commentary on the ways in which this work reflected as much on where he was coming from as it did on where he now found himself, “an émigré filmmaker who was working in the US but whose heart and mind were still based elsewhere”.
