The Films of Douglas Sirk

Tom Ryan

University Press of Mississippi

Two of Sirk’s last three films were driven by the experiences of earlier times. The Tarnished Angels, adapted from William Faulkner’s Pylon, was a project he’d originally planned to make at UFA; A Time to Love and a Time to Die is a drama about Germany in a state of collapse towards the end of World War II and tells a story that was very close to Sirk’s heart. Both provide evidence of a filmmaker working at the peak of his art.
