THE TIGER OF ESCHNAPUR

aka TIGER OF BENGAL; DER TIGER VON ESCHNAPUR
France, Germany, Italy | 1959 | Fritz Lang

THE TIGER OF ESCHNAPUR film still

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. This film and its sequel The Indian Tomb, which shows at 8:30 pm, 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. 101 min.

Special event pricing for both films $14; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $11. (Both tickets must be purchased at the same time.) Individual films $10/$7 apiece. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
