   Like many other old-timers,  I have seen Fritz  Lang's "M,'' in German 
with English sub-titles, with Peter Lorre, many times,  usually on some TV 
channel, although not lately. 
   As the above site notes, the movie is about a child-killer who  makes 
so difficult for lesser criminals that the underworld sets out to  kill him. 
The film has been remade at least once but nowhere near as well as The  
    It ranks up there along with von Sternberg's,  The Blue Angel, also in 
man, with Marlene Dietrich, and, maybe, a dozen  other foreign classic 
like the Pagnol trilogy [in French]  Fanny, Marius and Cesar, all with 
the French actor. -- bob  cole
