Von Sternberg looked for other work in New York but had little success. He received credit as assistant to Wallace Worsely on the The Highest Bidder, released in 1921. He felt a greater affinity with European methods than American ones, and he crossed the Atlantic on a cattle boat in 1921. He went straight to Vienna, visiting the city six times that year. On each occasion he lived at Gartnerstrasse, listing his profession as “film director.” Bon Sternberg called on Arthur Schnitzler on May 24, but was overcome with nerves and could not stop talking. Schnitzler had to remind his visitor that he had come to hear the thoughts of the author of Reigen and Traumnovelle, not vice versa.
