Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Offbeat, talented international writer-director, a former actor best known for the galvanizing visuals, sleek eroticism and provocative symbolism of his modernist Czech films "Erotikon" (1929), "From Saturday to Sunday" (1931) and "Ecstasy" (1932)--the latter a success de scandale thanks to the nude appearance of Hedwig Keisler (later Hedy Lamarr). Machaty's later films, made in Italy, Austria, the US and West Germany, generally did not fulfill the promise of his earlier work, but he did make several worthy if minor films in the US, notably the striking short subject, "Wrong Way Out" (1938) and the stylishly photographed and narrated film noir, "Jealousy" (1945).
