Fritz O'Donnell

I've started re-reading Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore's novel, Fury, which originally appeared under their Lawrence O'Donnell byline, and I've been reminded that it's something of a sequel to a novella called "Clash by Night," which I've never read. It seems to be the case that they've never been published together in a single volume, but I just googled those two titles to double-check. The results reminded me that Fritz Lang directed movies called Fury and Clash by Night. Neither of those are amongst my favorite movies by Lang (despite the pairing of Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Ryan in Clash by Night), and I'm left imagining Lang's adaptations of the Kuttner and Moore stories.

Fury is from 1947 and has a darkness and fatalism to it that certainly would have fit with Lang's style. It's set in vast cities called Keeps at the bottom of the Venusian ocean, and that makes me think of the subterranean workers city in Lang's Metropolis. There could be a celluloid fantasia in this, but I need to track down a copy of the Kuttner/Moore "Clash by Night".
