Tourneur returned to Europe in 1927 and, aside from one German film, continued his career doing fine work in France through 1948, when he lost a leg in a car accident. Probably his best-known film from this period is his strong and finely acted adaptation of Ben Jonson's "Volpone" (1940), starring Harry Baur and Louis Jouvet. He subsequently translated English-language mystery novels into French. Father of director Jacques Tourneur.
