Today in History: Fritz Lang born in 1890

Today in History: Fritz Lang born in 1890

129 years ago today, the ground-breaking film director and screenwriter Friedrich Christian Anton “Fritz” Lang was born in Vienna. In the 1920s, Lang made film history with silent movies like “Nibelungen” (1924) and “Metropolis” (1926). His film “M” (1931) is considered a precursor to the film noir genre. In his famous and much-quoted masterpiece “Metropolis” he drew the dark future vision of a world in which the proletariat was serving the machines in an impersonal world city. Fritz Lang emigrated to the USA in 1933 and together with Bertolt Brecht directed the movie “Hangmen Also Die” (1942), directed against the Nazi regime in Germany. In 1963 he was awarded the German Film Award and in 1966 the Federal Cross of Merit. Land died in 1976.

Today is Columbus Day

Today is Columbus Day

In 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail on a voyage to find a shorter trade route to Asia. He traveled west and accidentally landed in the Americas, spawning the era of European exploration in the New World. The first celebration of his discovery did not take place until October 12, 1792—exactly 300 years after his landing. In 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed Columbus Day a national holiday, observed each year on the second Monday of October. Happy Columbus Day!
