2676SPIES (SPIONE)SPIES (SPIONE)1927b & w88 min16mm (Directed by Fritz Lang; with Rudolf Klein-Rogge, Gerda Maurus, Willy Fritsch and Lupu Pick) The main action centers on the conflict between two rival factions--a vast international organization and the government's secret services. The police and the secret services are virtually paralyzed by the spies who are able to steal and murder as they please. A special secret agent is dispatched to try to insure that an important treaty reaches its proper destination. As layer upon layer of meaning is formed on this foundation, Lang weaves a tale of suspence and sensation.
