Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Bernard Vorhaus (25 December 1904 - 23 November 2000) was an American film director born in New York City.

The Harvard University graduate, in addition to directing thirty-two films, was also the mentor to future film director David Lean, some of whose work as a film editor early in his career was on Vorhaus pictures. He worked steadily as a screenwriter in Hollywood while in his 20s but wanted to direct movies. He eventually decided to move to England and began directing B-movies or quota quickies, most notably The Last Journey (1935). After success in England, Vorhaus moved back to the U.S. and began working at Republic Pictures again directing B-movies.

Vorhaus was blacklisted in 1951 at HUAC hearings. Vorhaus had already moved to Europe at that time and directed a few minor films while there. He finally returned to England and retired from the film business, founding a business specialising in house renovations.

Vorhaus had two children, Gwyn and David, an electronic music pioneer who worked under the name White Noise.
