Biographical Notes in German: Hervorragender schwedischer Schauspieler und Regisseur, zusammen mit Mauritz Stiller der künstlerische Begründer des klassischen schwedischen Kinos. Erst Theaterregisseur, 1912 zum Film, in den Jahren 1923 bis 1930 mit nur mässigem Erfolg in Hollywood tätig. Nach seinem ersten Tonfilm kehrt er nach Schweden zurück, dann im Film fast nur noch in Charakterrollen tätig.

"Als einer der prominentesten Regisseure des europäischen Stummfilms ging Victor Sjöström 1923 in die USA. Dort galten seine Filme als "zu deprimierend". Inzwischen zählt der 1879 geborene Regisseur, der seine Filmkarriere als Schauspieler im Ernst-Ahlbohm-Ensemble begann, zu den unumstrittenen Klassikern der internationalen Filmgeschichte. Neben Mauritz Stiller gilt er als der erste Meister des skandinavischen Lichtspiels. Durch diese beiden Heroen entwickelte sich der schwedische Film zu einer Kunstform und erhielt weltweit Anerkennung. Sein Regiedebüt gab Sjöström 1912, gut ein Jahr nach der Gründung einer eigenen Theatergruppe, und bereits ein weiteres Jahr später nahm ihn Charles Magnusson, der Gründer der schwedischen Produktionsgesellschaft AB Svenska Biografteatern, unter Vertrag. In dieser Zusammenarbeit entstand eine Reihe interessanter Filme, von denen viele im Zweiten Weltkrieg zerstört wurden. Die "Svensk Filmindustri" schickte Sjöström 1923, und später auch seinen Kollegen Stiller, auf eine "Erfahrungsreise" in die Vereinigten Staaten, wo er Gespür für den Geschäftssinn Hollywoods entwickeln sollte. Zwischen 1923 und 1930 drehte er unter dem amerikanisierten Namen Seastrom für MGM Filme wie "The Scarlett Letter" (1926), "The Wind" (1928) mit Lillian Gish und "The Divine Woman" (1927) mit Greta Garbo. Bei Cinéasten fand Sjöström mehr Anerkennung als bei seinem Publikum. Charlie Chaplin nannte ihn gar den "größten Regisseur der Welt". Mit seinem Anspruch, gleichermaßen unterhaltsame wie künstlerisch ambitionierte Filme zu drehen, gewann Sjöström den Respekt der größten Studiobosse wie Louis B. Mayer und Irving Thalberg. Schnell jedoch verblasste in den USA das Interesse an dem expressiven Stil der Sjöström-Filme und so kehrte er mit der Geburt des Tonfilms 1930 zurück in sein Heimatland. Er trat als Schauspieler am Theater und in zahlreichen Filmen anderer Regisseure auf - unvergessen ist seine letzte Rolle als Professor Isak Berg in Ingmar Bergmans überwältigendem Drama "Wilde Erdbeeren" (1957)."
