He moved to the U.S. as a teen, working as a busboy and then waiter at the Paramount studios before talking management into letting him work as a second assistant director in 1923. He produced his first U.S. film in 1936, and then began an impressive career in Hollywood.
His first huge success was to save the failing Universal Studios from financial disaster by producing a string of highly successful Deanna Durbin musicals. He is also credited with saving the career of Marlene Dietrich, which was faltering in the late 30s. In the 1940s, Pasternak moved on to MGM where he helped to popularize classical music on the screen.
Some of his films include It Started With Eve, Anchors Aweigh, The Great Caruso, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, Where the Boys Are, Jumbo, The Courtship of Eddie's Father and two popular Elvis Presley classics, Spinout and Girl Happy."
