Set around the year 2000, a mammoth city is ruled by the super-efficient industrialist John Fredersen. The workers, a subhuman species of sluggish creatures, are led by the 'saintly' Maria, who urges them not to rebel but to wait patiently for the arrival of a Mediator. Fredersen has kidnapped Maria and orders mad scientist Rothwang to create a robot replica to take her place. But his plan is doomed when the evil mechanical Maria incites the massed workers to revolt and destroy everything in sight
Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang( Visual )

42 editions published between 1933 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locked away in an asylum for a decade and teetering between life and death, the criminal mastermind Doctor Mabuse (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) has scribbled his last will and testament: a manifesto establishing a future empire of crime. When the document's nefarious writings start leading to terrifying parallels in reality, it's up to Berlin's star detective, Inspector Lohmann (Otto Wernicke, reprising his role from M) to connect the most fragmented, maddening clues in a case unlike any other. A sequel to his enormously successful silent film Dr. Mabuse: the gambler, Fritz Lang's The testament of Dr. Mabuse reunites the director with the character that had effectively launched his career. Lang put slogans and ideas expounded by the Nazis into the mouth of a madman, warning his audience of an imminent menace, which was soon to become a reality. Nazi Minister of Information Joseph Goebbels saw the film as an instruction manual for terrorist action against the government and banned it for endangering public order and security. A landmark of mystery and suspense for countless espionage and noir thrillers to come, this is the complete, uncut original director's version in a stunning new transfer

Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse by Fritz Lang( Visual )

10 editions published between 1932 and 2011 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lang's final film before fleeing Germany for the US (without his wife Thea Von Harbou, who co-scripted the film and subsequently joined the Nazi party) reprises the character of the master criminal he had created for his famous two-part 'Dr Mabuse, der Spieler'. The film picks up where the original left off, with Mabuse confined to an insane asylum where he uses his hypnotic powers over others, and the asylum director as the agent of those powers, to carry out his master plan to destroy the state. While engineering a series of criminal and chaotic acts that rocks Berlin, the asylum director manages to lead a double life, retaining his position at the asylum. Made during the Nazi party's rise to power, the film captures a political atmosphere of dread, nihilism and individual impotence and although Lang later characterized it as an explicit anti-Nazi parable, its meanings are more general and its points of comparison not exact. Nevertheless, it was banned and nearly destroyed by the Nazis
