    Famed for his 'Lubitsch Touch' in films

    He said: 'I let the audience use their imaginations. Can I help it if they misconstrue my suggestions?'
    His film 'Trouble in Paradise (1932),' was not approved for re-issue in 1935 when the Production Code was being enforced.
    His incredibly brilliant, universal style of filmmaking eventually became known as 'The Lubitsch Touch.'
    Anybody who can make Tallulah Bankhead mad must be doing something right.

    He directed Mary Pickford in 'Rosita (1927),' a film that helped her demonstrate her versatility in films.
    He is responsible for the legendary teaming of Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald.

    He introduced the concept of dubbing whole scenes of movies during post production.
    He has a star on the walk of fame.
    He was voted #16 in Entertainment Weekly's greatest movie directors.
