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.

Night Will Fall 3 stars

movie title

In the mid 1980s, an American researcher stumbled upon a rusty film can marked F3080 in the vaults of the Imperial War Museum in London. Inside was an incomplete film, made in the spring of 1945, which documented the atrocities witnessed by Allied forces as they entered the German concentration camps. This documentary recounts the story of the making of the 1945 film, the people involved in its production and the decision to never show the finished print.

In the mid 1980s, an American researcher stumbled upon a rusty film can marked F3080 in the vaults of the Imperial War Museum in London. Inside was an incomplete film, made in the spring of 1945 and commissioned by Sidney Bernstein, chief of the Psychological Warfare Film Section of SHAEF, which documented the atrocities witnessed by Allied forces as they entered the German concentration camps. At the time, the British Government decided not to air the film, fearful that it would stall efforts to rebuild bridges across Europe with Germany. Dr Toby Haggith from the Museum has spent three years restoring the film, frame by frame, and recreated the missing final reel from the original shot lists. This feature-length documentary directed by Andre Singer recounts the incredible story of the making of the 1945 film, the people involved in its production - including Alfred Hitchcock and renowned editor Stewart McAllister - and the decision to never show the finished print.
