Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang( Visual )

9 editions published between 1932 and 2012 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1922 Fritz Lang made the two-part film "Dr Mabuse, der Spieler" ("Dr Mabuse, the Gambler"). He revived his evil genius in 1933 for this talkie sequel which picks up precisely where the original had ended, with Mabuse's madness, capture and incarceration. Mabuse has been in an asylum for ten years, but his crime organisation is still perpetrating an insane orgy of wanton destruction, threats, shoot-outs, thefts, explosions, bombings, burnings, and floodings. Banned by the Nazis, the film is one of Fritz Lang's most inventive crime thrillers

Berlin 1931 - eine Stadt in Angst und Schrecken: Ein psychopathischer Kindermörder geht um, der von der Polizei nicht zu fassen ist. Aufgeheizt durch die allgemeine Hysterie intensiviert die Polizei ihre Bemühungen, ihn zu schnappen. Dabei dringt sie immer weiter in das Terrain der Berliner Unterwelt vor und macht deren Geschäfte fast unmöglich. Da der Mörder die gesamte Unterwelt in Verruf bringt, beschließen die Gangster, um sich die Polizei vom Leib zu halten, sich ebenfalls auf die Jagd nach dem Täter zu machen... Ein legendärer Klassiker der Filmgeschichte, von Fritz Lang inszeniert. Lang ließ sich durch eine Mordserie während der 20er Jahre zum diesem Film - sein erster Tonfilm überhaupt - inspirieren. Die herausragende filmhistorische Bedeutung, die "M" zu recht genießt, ließe sich allein schon anhand der ästhetischen Gestaltung dieses Films aufweisen. Die von Fritz Lang an dem für ihn völlig neuen Medium Tonfilm durchgeführten Experimente gelten heute wie damals als "Beispiel für eine vorbildliche Bewältigung des Mediums Ton". Die konzeptuelle Idee dieses Films war durch aktuelle Zeitungsmeldungen entstanden, die über die Fälle der Serienmörder Haarmann und Kürten berichteten. Dem zeitgenössischen Trend zur "Neuen Sachlichkeit" folgend, wollte Lang einen Film realisieren, der rein auf Tatsachenberichten aufbauen sollte. [...]
