Fritz Lang’s Indian Epic, Part II: The Indian Tomb
In the second half of Lang’s two-part epic, our German hero tries to escape with his beloved, the temple dancer Seetha, but is captured and imprisoned in a dungeon. Meanwhile, a palace rebellion threatens to depose the maharajah. The film reaches a pinnacle of exoticism with Debra Paget’s eye-popping, censor-defying “snake dance.”
