Georg Tressler

25 January 1917 to 6 January 2007

Austrian director Tressler is credited with discovering Horst Buchholz, star of his films Die Halbstarken (1956), Endstation Liebe (1957) and Das Totenschiff (1959). Like Buchholz he went to Hollywood, but the American industry was not to his taste. From the mid-1960s on he directed soaps and serials for television.
