"The Tiger of Eschnapur"
Directed by Fritz Lang
This exciting first of
two adventure films set in India marked Fritz Lang's return to Germany.
Berger, a young engineer, falls desperately in love with Seetha, a
beautiful temple dancer coveted by the Maharaja, forcing Berger and Seetha
to attempt to escape. While the exteriors were shot in India, the
interiors were all studio sets, yet Lotte Eisner found the film was
notable for its "formal perfection, the masterly use of decor and
spatial structures." Based on a script written by Lang and Thea von
Harbou in 1920. German no English subtitles.
