You and Me (1938)
Directed by Fritz Lang
For his third outing with Paramount after emigrating to Hollywood, Fritz Lang reconnected with the flavor and themes of his German work, specifically M, with this Brechtian part-musical social drama with songs by Kurt Weill. Working in a department store owned an egalitarian eccentric who only hires parolees for his staff, two ex-cons (Sidney and Raft) meet, fall in love and struggle to make a life together as their pasts ever threaten to catch up to them.
