He can prevent the suicide of the young woman Marion Menil at the last minute. But what is the reason for Miss Menils doing? Why is she initimidated?

The car which Dr. Mabuse escapes in is described in the film as a large American sedan; actually, it's an inexpensive vintage (circa 1952) Chevrolet, a poor choice for Herr Doktor and an obvious sign that it's going to be wrecked. See more »

What a swan song this is! Wild and wooly fun from Fritz Lang. Dr Mabuse is running his criminal empire from the Hotel Luxor. His henchmen never see his face as they receive their orders via radio.Without giving too much away his plans involve the takeover of a rich man's empire and general blackmail and murder.Gert Frobe plays the inspector out to nab Mabuse before Mabuse kills him.Funniest scene takes place in the Inspector's office when everybody starts to fall before a bomb goes off! After watching 5 Mabuse movies in a row this is easily the best.It is available from Sinister Cinema.
