Fritz Lang's FRAU IM MOND

(German, 1929) 156 minutes

Astronomer Professor Georg Manfeldt is regarded as a crackpot for postulating the idea of an expedition to the Moon to harvest the plentiful supplies of gold that he believes are there. Wolf Helius, the head of an aeronautics firm, approaches Manfeldt and offers to mount such an expedition. As soon as Helius announces his plans, American Walter Turner, a representative of an international cartel headed by the five most powerful people in the world, steals Manfeldt's notes and blackmails Helius into allowing him to come along on the expedition. Helius also agrees to take his business partner Hans Windegger and Windegger's fiancée Friede Velten, whom Helius secretly desires. The rocket is built and launched. They land on the Moon and soon find the plentiful supplies of gold. However, the expedition is endangered by both Turner's treachery and Windegger's fearful belief that they will all be killed.
