Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang ( Visual )
37 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1922 Fritz Lang made the two-part film "Dr Mabuse, der Spieler" ("Dr Mabuse, the Gambler"). He revived his evil genius in 1933 for this talkie sequel which picks up precisely where the original had ended, with Mabuse's madness, capture and incarceration. Mabuse has been in an asylum for ten years, but his crime organisation is still perpetrating an insane orgy of wanton destruction, threats, shoot-outs, thefts, explosions, bombings, burnings, and floodings. Banned by the Nazis, the film is one of Fritz Lang's most inventive crime thrillers

2 editions published in 2004 in German and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Der Psychoanalytiker Dr. Mabuse betreibt in den 20er Jahren unter Einsatz hypnotischer Fähigkeiten die Vergrößerung seines Reichtums und die Erweiterung seiner Macht. Bis ihm ein Staatsanwalt das Handwerk legt, hat er Unheil über viele Menschen gebracht. Fritz Langs zweiteiliger Stummfilm ("Der Große Spieler - ein Bild der Zeit". "Inferno, ein Spiel um Menschen unserer Zeit") erweist sich über seine melodramatische Kriminalgeschichte hinaus als präzise dramaturgische und formale Konstruktion, die in beinahe dokumentarischer Weise nicht nur die Lebenshaltung veschiedener Gesellschaftsschichten und die Vergnügungssucht und Dekadenz von Großbürgertum und Kleinadel attackiert, sondern auch die Bedingungen aufzeigt, unter denen eine Gesellschaft zwischen Chaos und Tyrannei einem "Übermenschen" vefallen kann. Filmhistorisch belegt der Film die Übergänge vom Expressionismus zur Neuen Sachlichkeit. (Lexikon des internationalen Films)
