** Even in his American films, he often had this archetype, especially his thirties films with Sylvia Sidney. Later examples include Creator/JoanBennett, Creator/GloriaGrahame, Anne Baxter and Ida Lupino. Lang's favorite actress to work with in Hollywood was Creator/BarbaraStanwyck, even if they made one film.

Fritz Lang (18901976) was an UsefulNotes/{{Austria}}n director known for his trope-making films in the Golden Age of German and Hollywood cinema. After trying first to be an architect and then a painter, Lang got into the film industry after serving in UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, as both a writer and actor before becoming a director. In the early 1920's he met his second wife, screenwriter Thea von Harbou, who he collaborated with on all his films for the next decade. This period included ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'', ''Die Nibelungen'', the [[Film/DrMabuseTheGambler Dr. Mabuse series]], and ''Film/{{M}}'', which are probably his most famous works.

* CanonWelding: ''M'' and the ''Dr. Mabuse'' films take place in a SharedUniverse due to the presence of Detective Lohmann in both.



* RealitySubtext: Many of his films with Thea von Harbou cast her ex-husband Rudolf Klein-Rogge (whom she left to marry Fritz) as the villain. A major plot point in ''Metropolis'' is the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything work-obsessed control freak]] Joh Fredersen taking the wife of mad scientist Rotwang (played by Klein-Rogge). The statue of the (dead) wife bears suspicious similarities to Thea von Harbou, so... yeah.
