Fritz Lang: Genre and Representation in His American Films by Reynold Humphries focuses on eighteen of the twenty-two films made by Lang between 1936 and 1956, examining them in the light of semiotics and psychoanalysis and suggesting solutions to theoretical problems in such areas as the spectator, classical filmic narrative and genre. He also explores how far the auteur theory can be applied to Lang's films. [Originally published as 'Fritz Lang: cineaste americain' (Paris, Editions Albatross, 1982). Revised and translated by the author]
