"... re-create the true story of a Prussian town's rebellion against Napoleon's army of occupation. Laced with anti-Christian symbolism and National Socialist ideology, the film is a mirror of Hitler Germany's own war for survival. In its characterization of Kolberg's besieged citizenry, the epic allegorically reflects the spirit of fanatical resolve to fight on, that Nazi propaganda was attempting to instill in the German population during the final years of World War II"--Container

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
