WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

fritzlangFritz Lang (1890–1976)

Born: December 5, 1890 in Vienna, Austria-Hungary [now Austria]
Died: August 2, 1976 (age 85) in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA

Married to: Lily Latte (1971 – 2 August 1976) (his death)
Thea von Harbou (26 August 1922 – 26 April 1933) (divorced)
Lisa Rosenthal (1919 – 1921) (her death)

[on Erich von Stroheim] In my opinion, there were only two directors in Hollywood who made films without regard to box-office success: Von Stroheim and myself.

[on Edward G. Robinson] Each part he plays, he enriches with deep and warm understanding of human frailties and compels us to pity rather than condemnation, always adding vivid color to the intricate mosaic of motion picture reality.

In America sex is preached, in France it is done.
