About Fritz Lang

Friedrich Christian Anton 'Fritz' Lang (December 5, 1890 _ August 2, 1976) was an German-Austrian-American filmmaker, screenwriter, and occasional film producer and actor. One of the best known emigres from Germany's school of Expressionism, he was dubbed the 'Master of Darkness' by the British Film Institute. His most famous films include the groundbreaking Metropolis (the world's most expensive silent film at the time of its release), and M, made before he moved to the United States, which is considered to be the precursor to the film noir genre.
