Fritz Lang’s Metropolis monocle
This monocle was worn by director Fritz Lang during the making of Metropolis (1926). Housed in a unique mechanical frame designed by Thomas Kuntz with a vintage oversize gelatin silver photograph of Lang by D’Gaggeri of Beverly Hills mounted beneath, giving the illusion he is wearing the monocle. Lang wore a monocle throughout his life, generally for effect, but in later years when his sight actually began to fail, Lang gave the Metropolis monocle to Forry Ackerman. A fantastic signature relic from this visionary film maker.
