The Golden Age came to an end. An army of directors, writers, actors,
cameramen, film composers, studio artists, and set designers left Germany over
the next few years, many of them going first to Paris or Switzerland, and then
making their way to Hollywood, some with contracts from one of the major studios
in hand. Not all were German by birth. There were Hungarians like Billy Wilder
and Austrians like Fritz Lang in the mix. A good number of them were Jews, for
whom removal was ...

... mistaken identity, standard fare for the urban crime dramas so popular in the
commercial cinema of the era. But what distinguishes the script is its somewhat
tendentious preoccupation with the inadequate dispensing ofjustice by a system
that can only pretend to certainty about the truths of human experience (much as
in Fritz Lang's better known 1936 film Fury). Under Boris lngster's inspired
direction, Stranger on the Third Floor Borderings Dark Passage: Stranger on the
Third Floor.

Scott's film recalls an older filmic image ofthe city, Fritz Lang's Metropolis, in

creator, dehumanizes and mechanizes its inhabitants, whose labor is marshaled
to maintain the privileged lifestyle of an elite. If Lang's film can be identified in
terms of a Marxist dystopia of dehumanized labor, then Scott's vision is of a more

(It will only reinforce your German stereotypes to tell you that this underworld was
actually well organized, with guilds protecting the interests of upstanding
criminals - the portrayal of them in Fritz Lang's great film M is not far from reality.)

Grosz's sharply satirical ...
