All of the original credits appear only in the beginning with no music.
During the time the US remake M (1951) was released, producer Seymour Nebenzal re-released the original film. For this re-release some things were changed, i.e. a new title sequence with music (Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King") was added, as well as sound effects during some silent passages. In addition, the film was cut down to 99 minutes, removing i.e. any material that made the government look foolish.
