YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE

United States | 1937 | Fritz Lang

YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE film still

The second American film from the German maker of Metropolis and M is a young-criminal-lovers-on-the-run drama that created the template for later films like Bonnie and Clyde and Pierrot le Fou. Henry Fonda plays an ex-con trying to go straight. But Fate seems to have other plans when he is framed for murder. Sylvia Sidney is his devoted wife. “Perhaps the finest of Fritz Lang’s American movies, and certainly one of the finest American melodramas of the 30s.” –Pauline Kael. DCP. 86 min.
