  • George Fitzmaurice came to the States in the mid 1900s, and after working in theater as a set designer began writing for films in 1908. A director by the mid teens, he worked in a range of genres before hitting his stride in the '20s with several handsome romantic dramas: The Cheat with Pola Negri (which he also produced); The Son of the Sheik, Rudolph Valentino's final film; and The Night of Love with Ronald Colman. His notable films of the '30s include the Colman comedies Raffles (co-directed with Henry D'Arrast) and The Devil to Pay; the Greta Garbo dramas Mata Hari and As You Desire Me; and The Last of Mrs. Cheyney; which the uncredited Fitzmaurice completed after its director Richard Boleslawsky died during production.
