Fritz Lang

Friedrich Christian Anton „Fritz” Lang (December 5, 1890 – August 2, 1976) was an Austrian-German filmmaker, screenwriter, and occasional film producer and actor. One of the best-known émigrés from Germany’s school of Expressionism, he was dubbed the „Master of Darkness” by the British Film Institute. His most famous films include the groundbreaking Metropolis – which was the world’s most expensive film up to that point – and M (1931), a precursor that was made before he moved to the United States.
