DIE 1000 AUGEN DES DR. MABUSE, based on the Esperanto novel «Mr. Tot buys a thousand eyes» by the Polish author Jan Fethke, brought the story into the contemporary times and combined elements of Edgar Wallace films, spy fiction and Big Brother surveillance with the nihilism of the Mabuse world. It was the last film directed by Fritz Lang and concerned the further exploits of Dr. Mabuse, a character Lang had used earlier in DR. MABUSE, DER SPIELER (1922) and DAS TESTAMENT DES DR. MABUSE (1933).
