Abstract:

This paper examines three phases in the career of exiled German-Jewish director Robert Siodmak: his late Weimar, Hollywood, and postwar German work. It argues that the exilic experience is reflected in a shift of temporal and spatial configurations in Siodmak's American film noirs and in his German films after his remigration to Europe after the war. This shift is visible in the differing treatment of modes of transport or spatial mobility and in alternative approaches to narrative progression.
