Original caption attached to the print: "Emil Jannings German movie star arrived today. Emil Jannings, German actor who was born in Brooklyn in 1886 returned to his native land on the Hamburg-American liner 'Albert Ballin.' Mr. Jesse Lasky is greeting him." In fact, Jannings was born in Switzerland, but along with his three-year contract with Paramount came a revision in his life story which made him American by birth and two years younger.
