Classic movie is an unnerving character study

By From page B4 | February 28, 2014

The Silver Screen Classic Movie Series continues on Saturday, March 1, with an eerie crime drama from 1931.

In this classic, child murderer Hans Becker can’t stop himself from killing. His crimes result in a manhunt so intense that the local hoods get involved when the cops interfere with their livelihood.

The criminals decide to find and punish this psychopath themselves. This film is an unnerving character study, in German, with English subtitles. The movie is shown at 1, 4 and 7:30 p.m. in the Beecher Room of the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. in Auburn.

The series is presented by the library and the movie is free.
