Biography

D'ascendance italo-autrichienne par son père et croate par sa mère (affiliée à la maison de Kabužić ), né dans l'Empire austro-hongrois, Albert Conti émigre aux États-Unis peu après la fin de la Première Guerre mondiale, vers 1920.

Repéré par Erich von Stroheim, il est engagé comme conseiller technique (en tant qu'ancien officier de l'armée autrichienne durant la guerre) et acteur sur le tournage de son premier film, Les Chevaux de bois, avec Norman Kerry et Mary Philbin, sorti en 1923, où Rupert Julian remplace Stroheim à la réalisation. Il contribue jusqu'en 1929 à une vingtaine d'autres films muets américains, dont L'Aigle noir de Clarence Brown (son troisième film, 1925, avec Rudolph Valentino, Vilma Bánky et Louise Dresser) et Mirages de King Vidor (1928, avec Marion Davies et William Haines).

Après le passage au parlant, Albert Conti participe encore à environ quatre-vingts films américains jusqu'en 1942 (Mon amie Sally d'Irving Cummings, avec Rita Hayworth et Victor Mature), avant deux ultimes prestations non créditées, dans Et la vie continue de Clarence Brown (1943, avec Mickey Rooney et Frank Morgan), puis The Pride of St. Louis d'Harmon Jones (1952, avec Dan Dailey et Joanne Dru).

Mentionnons également Monte-Carlo d'Ernst Lubitsch (1930, avec Jack Buchanan et Jeanette MacDonald), Les Croisades de Cecil B. DeMille (1935, avec Loretta Young et Henry Wilcoxon), ou encore Adieu pour toujours de Sidney Lanfield (1938, avec Barbara Stanwyck et Herbert Marshall).

A scout for the St. Louis Cardinals comes to a small town in the Ozarks to assess pitcher Jerome Herman Dean (Dailey). Dean, with an over-abundance of self-confidence, is certain that the club wants him to start immediately and is surprised that he is sent to the minor league Houston Buffaloes. Despite his obvious talents, Dean is teased about his rustic clothes and goes to a department store to buy new suits. He meets pretty credit officer Patricia Nash (Dru) and courts her with great vigor. At an exhibition between the Buffaloes and the Chicago White Sox, Dean is dismayed to see Pat with another man but pitches an almost perfect game. The White Sox players razz Dean, calling him "Dizzy," but he adopts the nickname, which is picked up by sports reporters. Dean asks Pat to elope, and although she is stunned by his proposal, agrees to marry him.
