Did Fritz Lang, preoccupied with murder in his work, in fact kill his own first wife - who died mysteriously in his presence after catching him in the arms of the Nazi-leaning screenwriter who became his second wife? Patrick McGilligan spent four years in Europe and America, interviewing Lang's dying contemporaries, researching government and film archives, and investigating the life story of Fritz Lang. His definitive biography - the only such book on Lang, who encouraged publicity but discouraged the truth - reconstructs the fascinating, flawed human being behind the monster with the monocle.
