Fritz Lang

Bold, brilliant, vain and extravagant, director Fritz Lang is still known as one of the founding fathers of German cinema. Beginning in 1917, when he worked with Joe May as a scenarist, he quickly rose in ranks to be a top-notch director, using the full forces available to him through the UFA studio. Such ambitious works as "Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler,"  "The Niebelungs," "Metropolis," "Woman in the Moon," and "M" propelled him to international prominence. His greatest films were created in collaboration with his wife, Thea von Harbou, who not only wrote the original scenarios, but shooting scripts as well, and often included a novelization of the film that was released at the same time as the film's premiere. In 1933, alarmed by the rise of National Socialism and their insistence on controlling the national film output, he left for France and Britain, and soon ended up in Hollywood, where he worked for Paramount and Universal until he died in 1976.
