Ministry of Fear, now available for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray in the U.S., was the eighth film Fritz Lang made in Hollywood after emigrating from Germany in 1936. It was also, as author Joe McElhaney (The Death of Classical Cinema: Hitchcock, Lang, Minnelli) elucidates in the following clip from an interview on our release, a crucial work in Lang’s career: an American studio film with a strong anti-Nazi theme made during World War II, it helped solidify Lang’s reputation here. McElhaney also touches on some fascinating—and apocryphal—Lang history.
