Fritz Lang’s classic story of a child murderer brought to justice is now available in a brand-new 2k restoration. Peter Lorre stars as Hans Beckert, a recently released asylum inmate with a compulsion to kill little girls. In an attempt to capture the killer, the police pressure the city’s criminal underworld, which in turn endeavors to find the killer themselves. Using a network of prostitutes, pickpockets and thugs, the criminals close in on Beckert and put him on trial in their own court.

On view at the Miami Beach Cinematheque there will also be a retrospective exhibition of vintage Fritz Lang memorabilia as part of the MCB Great Director Series titled ” Fritz Lang: From Austria to America”.
