Henry Koster by Irene Kahn Atkins

Of the many film artists displaced by Hitler, Henry Koster was among the few who successfully adapted to the American studio system. Although Koster directed 45 successful motion pictures in a wide variety of genres, he is best known for Three Smart Girls, Harvey, such musicals as Stars and Stripes Forever, and films with religious backgrounds, including the first CinemaScope film, The Robe. All of these share the interplay of warm human feelings that is a trademark of Koster's motion pictures.
