German film director whose 1924 movie Helena has been called his "masterpiece" although it was so expensive that it seriously damaged the finances of Bavaria Film.
Noa is perhaps best known today for his 1922 film Nathan the Wise, an adaptation of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's 1779 play of the same title, which made a plea for religious tolerance. He was the third husband of the actress Eva May, who was the daughter of his fellow director Joe May.
Noa was described by Vilma Bánky, who he directed twice, as her "favourite director".
Noa died on 5 December 1930, aged 36, in Berlin of peritonitis.
