Although many people know the Humphrey-Bogart-and-Ingrid-Bergman classic Casablanca, few people actually know the fact that its talented director Michael Kurtiz was a celebrated silent-era filmmaker back in his homeland Hungary before he moved to Hollywood. By his original name Mihály Kertész, he had quite an established career in Europe, ranging over 14 years of success. In Hungary, Kertész filmed around 48 films, only a few of which are known to have survived today. One of them, The Undesirable has been recently discovered. An expensive production with the leading actors and actresses of the time, lush art direction, fashionable costumes, and glamorous jewelleries, the film showcases the brilliant talent of Kertész. In this film, Kertész masterfully tells the story of a woman wrongfully charged with theft and her ultimate reunion with her long lost mother.
