PREMINGER, Otto Ludwig (1906-86), Austrian-American, stage and film producer, director, and actor born in Vienna. He received a law degree in 1928, but had by that time become an actor, director, and producer at Max Reinhardt's theater. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1935. On Broadway he directed such hits as Outward Bound (1938) and Margin for Error (1939). He played German roles in many films during World War II. He is best known, however, as a film director, specializing in screenplays with sensitive social themes. His many films include Laura (1944), The Moon Is Blue (1953), Anatomy of a Murder (1959), Exodus (1960), Such Good Friends (1971), and The Human Factor (1980). Preminger: An Autobiography appeared in 1977.
