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.

Rebel without a Cause, German 1-Sheet

60 years ago today, young Hollywood film star James Dean was killed in a head-on collision car accident in California. The 24-year old actor was behind the wheel of his Porsche sports car and was dead upon arrival at the hospital. Dean’s mechanic, a passenger in the car, got badly injured but survived the crash. The driver of the other car suffered only minor injuries. Dean had received a speeding ticket just two hours before. Although only one of Dean’s movies, “East of Eden,” had been released at the time of his death, the young actor had already become an idol for the younger generation. Dean had finished filming “Giant” only the day before his accident. Both “Rebel without a Cause” and “Giant” opened shortly after the actor’s death. His brief career and violent death transformed him into a legend. James Dean was the first actor to receive posthumous Academy Award nominations for Best Actor for his roles in “East of Eden” and “Giant.”
