Woman in the Moon

Fritz Lang's last silent film is nothing special, looking more like the work of Lang's wife and screenwriter (and Nazi-to-be) Thea von Harbou. German industrialists, convinced that there's gold on the moon, finance a space mission; the usual conflicts arise among the crew when they find it. Nice sets, no frisson. Lang claims to have invented the liftoff countdown for this 1928 film—too bad he couldn't get it copyrighted. 104 min.
