Not Rated | | Crime, Mystery, Thriller
When the police in a German city are unable to catch a child-murderer, other criminals join in the manhunt.
Although he was thrilled to play such a major part, Peter Lorre came to hate it later as people tended to associate him with being a child murderer in real life.
Man in Pub:
Hey, it's fatty Lohmann!
Everyone in Pub: Lohmann, Lohmann, Lohmann!
All goofs for this title are spoilers.
All of the original credits appear only in the beginning with no music.
The version shown at the film's premiere (on May 11th, 1931, running time 110 minutes) had an alternate ending: it shows the full trial of the murderer. This ending was later replaced by a woman sobbing "Man muß eben noch besser auf die Kinder achtgeben. IHR..." (One must look out for the children even harder. YOU...)
