You Only Live Once

Directed by Fritz Lang
United States, 1937
Film noir
  • English
  • No subtitles


Joan is the secretary to the public defender in a large city. She is in love with a career criminal named Eddie, and she believes that he is a basically good person who just had some tough breaks.

Our take

German auteur Fritz Lang’s second Hollywood film, this thrilling, pioneering film noir stars Sylvia Sidney and Henry Fonda. With its great influence on cinematic versions of Bonnie and Clyde, Lang’s taut, romantic masterpiece stands as yet another testament to the great films he made in America.
