Facts about

Included among the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die', edited by Steven Jay Schneider.
Soviet editors re-cut the Dr. Mabuse films into one shorter film (see Alternate Versions). The lead editor was Sergei M. Eisenstein.
Fritz Lang originally wanted the actress portraying Venus to be completely nude. When the first take was completed, he didn't like how the woman's pubic hair looked, and ordered her to shave it off. The actress indignantly refused, sending Lang into a tantrum. Eventually, a compromise was reached when a small strip of cloth was draped over the offending hair. This scene was predictably removed from the revival versions that circulated throughout the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, and has only recently been part of the film in the rare showings of the Fritz Lang archives' complete copy of Dr. Mabuse.
