Goofs

Right in the first shot, Barter's Borgward and the cars around him are supposed to be driving, suggested by the movements of the cars in the background. When the shot widens however, the rear wheel of his car isn't turning - a clear indication of a back projection. See more »

A great show, reminds me of the serials of the 1930's
14 February 1999 | by Jim-328See all my reviews

This is a 16mm print which I acquired in a batch of films. It is very well dubbed in English. I assume the film is available on video. This film reminds me of the serials of the 1930's. Fritz Lang ended his career with this swansong, a return to a theme of his earlier Dr. Mabuse films. The master criminal's henchmen have never seen his face, and get their commands by radio while cruising in a van. Note the scene in the police commissioner's office. Everyone is smoking furiously and the room soon becomes filled with smoke. There is an almost identical scene to this in "M". Overall and very amusing and enjoyable film.
