Margit Kornai, a Hungarian female film pioneer
Mrs. Béla Balogh, Margit Kornai (1883-1953) had already enjoyed a rich and successful artistic career when, at the age of 32 as a widow with two children, she married Béla Balogh (1885-1945). By producing no fewer than 65 (mostly) silent films in the creative community and family enterprise she established with her husband, this couple have gone down in history as one of the most fertile creative partnerships in Hungarian film.
