Trivia:

Worked as writer/producer for Ufa in the early 30's. His first films as a director met with disapproval from the Nazi regime and Wisbar consequently left Germany for the U.S. in 1939. He found little meaningful work in feature films, but had some success as a freelance director/producer in early anthology television during the late 1940's. He returned to Germany in the mid-1950's.
