This chapter details events in Fritz Lang’s life from 1957 to 1964. In 1958, Lang accepted an offer to remake Das indische Grabmal. Das indische Grabmal was split into two films—Der Tiger von Eschnapur (The Tiger of Eschnapur) and Das indische Grabmal. The first film introduced characters and place: the plot to overthrow Chandra, the romance between the architect Berger and the palace dancer Seetha, the flight of the lovers pursued by the jealous maharaja’s soldiers. The second focused on the rebellion fostered by a coalition between the warlords and Ramigani, the maharaja’s scheming brother. Both films were released in early 1959 to harsh reviews, especially in Germany. Lang’s final work Die tausend Augen des Dr. Mabuse, released in 1960, was also panned by German critics.
