DAS INDISCHE GRABMA
France, Germany, Italy | 1959 | Fritz Lang
A European architect summoned to India falls in love with a sultry temple dancer (Debra Paget) promised to the maharajah, prompting a rebellion, in Fritz (Metropolis, M) Lang’s two-part adventure that was filmed in India but marked his return to German film production after two decades in Hollywood. The Tiger of Eschnapur, which shows at 6:30 pm, and its sequel The Indian Tomb, were originally released in America as a radically condensed single movie entitled Journey to the Lost City. But now the ultra-rare originals have been restored and re-released—with every snake, tiger, crocodile, leper, and erotic dance intact. Step aside, Indiana Jones. “More than three hours of expressionistic color and wild plot developments.” –NY Times (2019). Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 102 min.
