  1. I had to google von Sterberg after seeing that quote. Interesting guy, although, he looks rather von stern.

    I also found it interesting that Ayn Rand bought his house, that may have been the model used in 'The Fountainhead,' one of my favorite novels.

  2. I like von Sternberg. I think he was softer than he let on. He certainly had a weak spot for Dietrich. I didn't know that about his house. I wonder if that's the fancy one he had designed? If so, I could see that being the inspiration for Rand's novel.
