Helene "Leni" Riefenstahl, pioneer of film and photographic techniques and "perhaps the most talented woman film director of the 20th century", having directed, among others, 'Triumph of the Will'. Following the fall of Germany, she was arrested and then released by US occupation forces. She would never again make a feature film.

Leni Riefenstahl in 1929, photo by Alexander Binder. Dancer, actress and film director, she was considered for the lead in "The Blue Angel," which ultimately went to Marlene Dietrich. Her directoral debut was in 1932, with the intensely mystical Alpine film "Das blaue Licht" ("The Blue Light"), which she co-wrote and starred.
