Hans Heinz Theyer
1910 - 1961
The cinematographer Hans Heinz Theyer was born as the son of the well-known cinematographer Hans Theyer. It was obvious that Hans Heinz Theyer also chose his profession in this environment.
But his first contact with the film business was not as a cinematographer but as a child actor. He took part in the movie "Gullivers Reisen" (24).
Two years later he made first experiences in the film business as an assistant of the actor and director Willi Forst before he realised his first movie as a cinematographer with "Blumen aus Nizza" (36).
Till the end of World War II followed only few more movies where he worked behind the camera like "Nastradin Hodzha i Hitar Petar" (39) and "Blonde Frau übern kurzen Weg" (40).
Beside it he was active as a war correspondent in the function of a photographer. He became a prisoner of the war by the Russians and was only able to return to his home in 1948.
After this traumatic experience he could continue his former initated career as a cinematographer and he became a demanded man behind the camera in the next years, often for movies directed by Franz Antel.
To his well-known movies after the war belong "Kleiner Schwindel am Wolfgangsee" (49), "Der alte Sünder" (51), "Hallo Dienstmann" (52), "Kaiserwalzer" (53), "Spionage" (55), "Lumpazivagabundus" (56), "Roter Mohn" (56) and "Der Schatz vom Toplitzsee" (59).
His last cinematical works came at the beginning of the 60s into being with "So leben wir alle Tage - Nervensägen" (61) and "Unter Wasser küsst man nicht" (62).
