Originally released in 1931, Fritz Lang's seminal thriller gave Peter Lorre his first major starring role and subsequently pigeonholed the actor as a creepy villain. Hans Beckert (Lorre) is a child murderer, who preys on the young and the vulnerable of Berlin. He attacks little Elsie Beckmann (Inge Landgut) on her way home from school and subsequently pens an angry missive to the media, which provides the police, led by Inspector Karl Lohmann (Otto Wernicke), with some valuable clues. Their hunt for the killer disrupts the city's vast criminal network and underworld boss Der Schranker (Gustaf Grundgens) eventually convenes a meeting of his fellow thieves and kingpins, who agree to hunt the killer by guarding the children. Beckert stalks another girl but a blind balloon vender (Georg John) recognises the tune he whistles, In The Hall Of The Mountain King by Edvard Grieg, and alerts some fellow beggars, who manage to secretly mark Beckert with an M to signal his guilt.
