This chapter details events in Fritz Lang’s life from 1939 to 1941. These include receiving his American citizenship on August 14, 1939; the death of his father, Anton Lang, on February 28, 1940, at the age of eighty; his relationship with agent Sam Jaffe which brought stability to his career; and his affair with actress Kay Francis. Lang also directed the following films for 20th Century Fox: The Return of Frank James, his first Western, which turned out to be a solid hit; Western Union which had even better box office returns than The Return of Frank James; and Man Hunt, released in June of 1941 to almost unanimously positive reviews.
