On today’s episode, I talked with my friend Heather Reed, who picked M or M: Eine Stadt zukt einen Morder, which was directed by Fritz Lang, and was written alongside his wife, Thea von Harbou who both worked together previously on his Dr. Mabuse series, the five hour long DIE NIBELUNGEN saga, and possibly the most influential science-fiction film of all time, Metropolis.
M starring Hollywood icon before he was one, Peter Lorre follows the story of Hans Beckert, a child murderer who is tracked down by both the German authorities and the criminal underworld. M is considered to be the first in the serial killer slasher film genre. So sit back relax, and enjoy the show.
