The Films of Fritz Lang
Jsterling03 on 04/02/2009
|Greetings fellow Sploofuser and welcome to my 200th "The Films of..." Kerblunk puzzle! |
For this monumental occasion, I've chosen my all-time personal favorite director; the great Austrian-born filmmaker, Fritz Lang.
Born in 1890, Lang created some of the most influential films ever made. His "Metropolis" (1927) and "M" (1931) are still the prototypes for today's sci-fi and thriller movies respectively.
Offered the position of head of the German Cinema Institute by Nazi propaganda minister Josef Goebbels in 1933, Lang fled for Paris, and then the US where he was initially under contract to MGM.
While nearly impossible to equal the stature of the great works he produced while in Germany, Lang went on to direct several memorable pictures until blindness forced him to retire in the early sixties.
Well-worth seeking out is "Fury" (1936), which features Spencer Tracy in a tale of revenge so twisted and devastating that it remains with the viewer long after watching.
Fill in the blanks to complete the film titles that were directed by the trailblazing Fritz Lang. All titles are from the official US theatrical releases.
