Early life and career

Moest was the son of the sculptor Richard Moest. He attended high school in Cologne, an art school and worked as a painter. In 1895, he began performing as an actor and opera singer on stages in Bad Godesberg, Hagen and other cities of West Germany. He came to Berlin in 1912 and was part of the theater at Nollendorfplatz. In the same year he was also active as a theater director. In 1913 he married actress Hedda Vernon.

He began acting in 1914 and was part of many comedy films. His first film as a director was Selbstgerichtet oder Die Gelbe Fratze[4] in which his wife Hedda Vernon was the lead actress.

He served in the army during World War I. He founded a film production company Moest-Film GmbH. In January 1922 Waldemar von Briger acquired most of the shares of the company and hence Moest resigned from the company and created Moest-Produktions GmbH. In April, 1922 after the failure of his film project he founded Aladin-Film Co. AG.

In 1923 he married Jewish Elly Charlotte Liepmann and after Adolf Hitler imposed restrictions on Jews, Moest led a very difficult life and worked as an assistant in the company Elekta-Film in Prague.
