Seymour Nebenzal didn't have an especially illustrious career as a
producer, either in Europe or the United States. Two of his American
movies, in fact, SIREN OF ATLANTIS and this one, were remakes of movies he
had produced in Europe. But in this case, he hired the right
Was it the growing Blacklist that resulted in this movie having no
writing credits on screen? Perhaps, but also perhaps not, as the
soon-to-be-blacklisted Howard da Silva and Joseph Losey both use their own
Losey and his team make excellent use of numerous Los Angeles locations,
including Angel's Flight, Bunker Hill, the Bradbury Building (which is
identified by name and location) and what seems to be that old amusement
park in Long Beach, although what's seen here could be
David Wayne is fine as the disturbed child killer, and delivers the
required final act speech very well. But he doesn't have the power and
poetry of Lorre's performance--but then who in Hollywood in 1951 would have?
The movie still has some of the comedy of Lang's original, but it's not as
dry and sardonic, and there isn't as much of it. The score isn't good, and
shoves the movie even more firmly in the direction of the melodrama it keeps
threatening to become.
The very last shot is oddly theatrical in a literal sense: it looks like
it is being performed on a stage. And I'm not sure what the point of the
drunken lawyer trying to grasp a bit of his former glory really was.
However, this element merely weakens the film, it doesn't destroy
No, this isn't as good as Lang's original, but Lang's original is
perhaps the best film of a great director. It's a classic in almost every
regard. This version of "M" is an interesting and largely successful
attempt at adapting the themes and ideas of the original to Los Angeles, and
to 1950s Hollywood. Naturally there are some weaknesses, but the movie is
brisk and engrossing, and certainly doesn't deserve the obscurity into which
it has fallen.
Some condemn the film merely for being a remake, but remakes have always
been a large part of movie history. There's little reason to object to
them, especially now that the original films tend to be available on video.
(In the 1930s-50s, originals were generally withdrawn.) If the remake is
good, then hooray, there are now two good movies on the subject. If it's
bad, then the remake will soon be forgotten.
